Bespoke Cardigan Knitting Pattern

For the first time, Digits & Threads is making a pattern available to all! It is included with Studio Membership, priced at 33% off for Armchair members, and at full price for free members and non-members.

Bespoke is a deliberately and thoughtfully gender- and size-inclusive design; the pattern includes instructions for making it with narrow or broad shoulders, and regular or tall length.

With an allover simple cabled pattern and diamond motif that runs down the centre back and sleeves, Bespoke is a buttoned cardigan featuring deep, integrated pockets; a choice of button placement on the right or left front; and a selection of techniques you’ll be happy to have in your knitter’s toolkit. Set-in sleeves and English-tailored shoulders provide a polished fit. The shawl collar is worked with short rows and changing needle sizes so the collar lays neatly around the back neck.
