Balloon Cardigan by Petite Knit

This week, our pattern spotlight is the Balloon Cardigan by Petite Knit.  We chose this design to highlight our newest addition, Curly, which is a DK-weight bouclé yarn.  The Balloon Cardigan is perfect for this base because it's knit using a simple stockinette stitch that allows the highly textured yarn to shine!

The cardigan is knit top-down with the neck and front bands being knit as you go (yay!).  The two main features are the deep v neck and the oversized, balloon sleeves.  I have cast on for this design using our new Curly base, and I can already tell it's going to look amazing when it's done. Here's where I'm up to:

I'm using the colourway Mustard, but there are a ton of colours to choose from!

The original design uses two yarns held together, which make a DK weight; however, you only need to use one strand of Curly.  Here's the yardages you will need for this design.

Sizes: XS (S) M (L) XL

Bust circumference: 100 (106) 111 (116) 123 cm

Yardage: 5 (6) 6 (6) 7 skeins Curly

You can find the Balloon Cardigan by PetiteKnit on Ravelry and our new Curly DK can be found here.

Happy Knitting xx
