Whiteowlcrochetco. Wicker Cardigan


Looking for that perfect wearable blanket? Look no further. Knit with two strands of bulky yarn, Wicker is the squishiest cardigan around!

Wicker is worked both in rows and in rounds from the bottom-up and is seamed at the sides. The sleeve stitches are picked up and worked in the round. The hem and wristbands are knit in twisted rib while the body is worked in fisherman's rib.

Length of body and sleeves is easily modifiable, but note that this will require alternate yardage.


Includes instructions for how to add a project to Ravelry.
