Sunny Cardigan


(5 Votes)


If you ask me, knit cardigan patterns for the summer should be colorful, easy to knit and flattering. This lovely Sunny Cardigan has it all! Not only is this versatile piece great for summer wardrobes, but it's perfect for adventurous knitters since the majority of the pattern features the simple stockinette and garter stitches. Experienced knitters can experiment with different types of yarns or mix up the edging of the pattern, while knitters who are still learning can sit back and relax while they work on this enjoyable free knitting pattern.

I love this sweater but instruction are dreadful and the whole thing should be proof-read. If instructions were better, I'd make it but even sizing is messed up. Sad...

It would be helpful to have enough of the pattern visible for reading and/or use!

Hi there, noseycat! The pattern actually is available for use! All you must do to get this FREE pattern is click the link. Because we did not design the pattern and do not have a contract with those who did, we cannot host the pattern directly on the site. Happy knitting!

Is this pattern free????

Yes! Just click on "Click here for knitting pattern" to get the pattern. Editors of AllFreeKnitting

It is not free for sizes L/XL (

I think the "easy" label on here is a misnomer. The pattern is written too loosely for this to be an easy/intermediate-beginner pattern. It is like looking at scribbled notes in a project idea book instead of a simple pattern. The instructions are overly simplified, but lack an explanation of how this is actually completed - It wants you to knit the band then "separate the work" into front and back panels while casting on the increase near the armholes... this isn't simple, and the clarity on what this really means is lacking. I'm not sure a lot of people will be picking up this pattern due to how it is written.
