Jessica Cardigan

Issue: Issue 73

Jessica Cardigan by Catherine Waterfield
Find the pattern in issue 73 Inside Crochet magazine.

This colourful cardigan brings bright rainbow shades to dull winter days.

● Kauni Unicolor, 100% wool, 150g/600m/656yds
Yarn A: Peacock ZZ x 2 (2, 2, 3, 3) balls
● Noro Kureyon Sock, 70% wool/30% nylon, 100g/420m/459yds Yarn B: Shade S182 x 2 (2, 2, 3, 3) balls
(Unfortunately this yarn is discontinued – see below for alternative suggestions)
● 3mm hook
● Yarn needle
● Scissors
● 9 (10, 10, 10, 10) buttons

This design would work well in a heavy 4ply/sportweight to light DK weight wool yarn. If using a self-striping yarn for the contrast stripes, choose one with long colour changes so you can work whole rows in one shade. If using separate yarns for stripes, less than 50g is needed of each colour.
We’ve also shown a version of the cardigan using Kauni Unicolor in Oatmeal NN3 as yarn A, with oddments of shades Turquoise YY1 (yarn B), Pink JJ4 (yarn C), Yellow KK2 (yarn D), Red MM2 (yarn E), Orange QQ (yarn F), Green RR (yarn G) and Lilac JJ2 (yarn H) to create the stripes.

Catherine is a keen crocheter who lives in Wiltshire with her family.
