Wragby Cardigan

(c) Knitscene

This was the first pattern I’ve done for Knitscene so I was very excited about it!  It’s a simple but very wearable cardigan.  Knit from the top down with raglan shoulder shaping all of the detail is worked afterwards in the collar.  The garter stitch collar is picked up once the body is finished and it is shaped as you work to form a curved front edge.
The sample sizes given in the magazine included the front collar bands, I’ve also given back widths on the ravelry page here to help with choosing sizes.

The sample is the size 38″ which has a back width of 16.75″ and it fits me well (I’m around a size 34-35″ bust).

This was my first time using this yarn (Plymouth Yarn worsted Merino Superwash) and it was really wonderful to use.  Soft, no pilling with fantastic stitch definition.  Will jump at the chance to use it again.

I knitted the magazine sample with 3/4 length sleeves but there is an option for full length sleeves written in the pattern as well.

For anyone following my blog tour for Contemporary Irish Knits it has stopped today at Fickle Knitter here, happy reading!

  1. It looks much better on you than on the model. You can’t see the shaping very well on the model, and I couldn’t see it was garter stitch (which I love). I can’t wait to see a few different versions knit up.

  2. I read this entry about your design and it necessitated a drive into town to buy the magazine. Splendid – what a wonderful design, casting on as I type . . . .!

  3. HELP! I am knitting the Wragby and I LOVE it. I am at the collar now, and apparently I have removed some markers that I should not have removed! The instructions say to K to before marker…then do short rows etc!

    Can you please tell me where the markers should be. I really can’t wait to finish this sweater and wear it!

    Thanks,
    Jean

  4. Take a look at the collar instructions, you are picking up stitches and placing markers – just count up the stitches and place the markers where indicated.
