Selfish KNIT Cardi



This past Summer, I snuck in a chunky cozy knit cardigan.
And I've only been able to enjoy it this past week!

I’m a huge fan of Sugarbush…and their CHILL yarn is to die for.
It’s super bulky and super soft.
100% Merino Wool... #obsessed

And there are way too many gorgeous colours to choose from.
Here are a few:

I’m definitely more in love with crochet…but grabbing my knitting needles 
a few times a year, keeps me on my toes.

This cardigan is VERY easy.
It’s made up of 5 panels: back x 1, sleeves x 2, front panel x 2 – that’s it!
Seam them together and you have the easiest, and chunkiest cardigan ever!


Again, I wouldn’t consider myself a knitter, so I use the most basic stitches….which is why…if you’ve never knit a garment….you can absolutely do this one!

I recently posted my crochet Selfish Cardi that I made last Winter….so this is my version of the Selfish KNIT Cardi….it’s okay to make things for yourself, so go ahead….be selfish.


Important Notes before you begin:

-It’s important to do a gauge swatch before you begin – this will determine the exact size you need and the exact number to cast on
-I've included sizes SMALL, MEDIUM, and LARGE below - if you need to make it smaller: cast on less, if you need to make it bigger: cast on more.

-You will need to know how to: CAST ON, KNIT STITCH, PURL STITCH, and BIND OFF.



Here is the Selfish Knit Cardi!

Row 1 (RS): Knit

Row 2 (WS): Purl
*repeat row 1 and 2 until you’ve reached desired length, I completed 64 rows

(you can "k2tog" at the beginning and ends of your last few rows if you'd like - this would be for under the armpit)

Bind off.




Seam Together:
-Lay each piece flat like the picture below
-Seam together
-Seam the shoulders and sleeves to the body

Note: when seaming the shoulders to the front panels, leave an inch or so unattached so it will fit nicely around your neck







And that's it!
