My design ideas and advice: This simple garter stitch cardigan is perfect for new knitters or for those coming back to knitting and want to try out their skills on a straight forward easy pattern.
This cardigan’s body is basically squares/rectangles with a teeny tiny bit of shaping on the fronts at the neck. With this in mind, make sure the front edges are neat and join in any new balls at the side seams.
If you would like to see this cardigan’s cousin, with a double-breasted finish, look no further than the Leighton Jacket.  
Love this cardigan and wish it came in an adult size? I designed versions of this in the Fiona cardigan, the Charlotte cardigan (in garter stitch) and Halyard in
Kilcarra Tweed Simple Knits!
