Amy

$10.00 USD

Amy is a super-bulky cardigan, worked on US 17/12.75mm needles at less than 2 stitches per inch. It's a very quick knit, and would be fun to modify – make the sleeves short or the body longer, try adding bobbles or increases at the sides of the body to create an A line, knit it oversized to create a coat. It's a simple, blank canvas waiting for your creative twist! The neckline edge is worked in garter stitch as you knit, so once you've finished knitting, close the underarm opening, block, and go!
