Breezy Tribal Knit Cardigan


Breezy Tribal Knit Cardigan

Spring is in the air, and that means it's time finally time for light and flowy cardigans. The Breezy Tribal Knit Cardigan is perfect for spring, from the fun colors to the cool designs. Free knitting patterns for sweaters don't usually get this interesting. The complicated designs make it a great pattern for intermediate knitters, but newcomers to this fun hobby will find it a wonderful, long project to help get them acquainted with the more difficult aspects of knitting. Teenagers especially love this cardigan, so try making one as a gift to the teen in your life.

The link for this pattern needs to be updated, it takes you to another pattern with the same name. I did find the pattern on the Lionbrand website Calypso Cardigan (Knit) SKU L40484 for anyone else looking for this amazing looking sweater

I love the look of this cardigan! I am not a huge fan of so many colour changes, but I think this would be a fun project to take on. There are so many colour changes that carrying over the yarn should be simple enough. The colour combinations are endless. I may make more than one!

This was my first big colorwork project. The pattern was easy to follow (not as easy to knit - intermediate is definitely appropriate), but I didn't have the appropriate tension between the two color and one color sections. To ensure they are even, make sure to knit the one color sections a little bit tighter or the two color sections more loosely. I'll be sure to try it again!

Does the small really come out at 46

I wondered about that also, when you add up the cast on stitches of each piece and divide by the gauge the total comes out 35.42, this is supported by adding up the width of each piece from the diagram which comes out to 35", so I suspect the 46" is a an error and it should actually read 35 or 36 which is reasonable for a size small.

I think it's worth considering in your calulation that the angle of the dangle is always proportionate to the size of the rise - has saved me hours of discomfort.
