Building Blocks Cardi - Knitting Pattern (PDF)

Sale price$10.50

The perfect v-neck cardigan knit in worsted weight yarn. Featuring optional bust darts, this pattern is chock full of features to create your unique version. This pattern has underarm shaping to make sure that the sleeve join of the drop shoulder really is off the shoulder and not out in the elbows. 

Build the exact right vest for your style and climate. A sleeveless vest/tee version is given in the pattern, as well as options of a high-low split hem or a plain hem.

This cardigan is knit from the bottom up flat, then split for the front pieces and back. V-neck shaping is worked at the same time as underarm shaping (in most sizes). Modified drop shoulder construction is finished with a Three Needle Bind-Off, then the sleeves are picked up and worked flat for gauge consistency, then seamed at the very end. Finally, the neckband and any optional pockets are worked.

Optional bust darts add up to 4" / 10 cm to the front vertically, for those who need a little more room. Drafted for a slim sleeve with 1” / 2.5 cm ease in the upper arm, but has optional instructions for knitting the armscye a different size for a full bicep adjustment if a less slim sleeve ease is desired.

For an A-line shaping mod, read our blog about it. This is a V-neck cardigan knitting pattern featuring modified drop shoulder construction.
