Felix Cardigan Kit
A cropped top down raglan cardigan with an eyelet motif incorporated into the raglan increases. This design by Amy Cristoffers is the perfect sweater to wear layered over tunics and dresses, I like it with waisted pants as well.
This is a very easy and very quick knit with worsted/light aran weight yarn worked at a relaxed open gauge. The Mohair blend yarn drapes beautifully and will bloom when washed filling in the fabric of the airy gauge.
The cardigan version is written to be worked back and forth in rows, the neck is shaped with short rows, the body and sleeves are divided after the yoke shaping. The body is worked back and forth in rows, the sleeves are worked in the round.
39 (43 ½, 48, 52 ½, 57)” around chest at underarm
