I want to make a cardigan out of cotton/linen blend yarn, but I need a good pattern. I’m looking for something that I can wear during the summer months. Any suggestions?
“The Mister’s” by Anne Hansen, which is found at KnitSpot.
I’ve made it in merino, silk, and a linen blend, and I’m telling you the linen one gets worn the most of the three!
Last year I made bleached in a silk/wool blend. I bet it would work great for linen too. Here’s the rav link: bleached pattern page
Helvetica by Elizabeth Doherty. It’s the smartest construction, entertaining to knit, and will never slide off your shoulders. And it works up fast as well.
That’s on my list too. I wish I could remember off hand what I found on Ravelry. They have quite a few. You may want to search for cropped.
I can only recall 2 at the moment Amiga in Knitty and one from Herzog’s first book — hers may be in wool, can’t recall, but mine won’t be. It’s described as a pattern for either a vest or a cardigan.
There’s also the Whisper Cardigan & another one very similar to it.
