Is there anything more autumnal than a good cabled cardigan? Rowan’s Felted Tweed Aran is a favorite of mine for fall: Lofty, warm, flecked with beautiful color. For the Talcott Cardigan, I paired a nice mix of Stockinette with modern, graphic cables.
Talcott is a fresh version of a classic cardigan, with a wider crew neckline, cables that extend to the hem of the sweater, and a deep button band.
You can purchase Talcott in one of two ways. For $10, you can get a traditionally-written pattern in 12 sizes and an aran gauge. It features long sleeves, cable and ribbing detail, and is worked in pieces from the bottom up with set-in sleeves.
Or, for $12.50, you can get a fully-custom Talcott Cardigan pattern. Via CustomFit, you can make your own Talcott pattern in whatever yarn, sleeve length, and silhouette you like for $12.50 (or as part of your monthly subscription).
Traditional pattern sizes: 29 (31, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 53)”/73.5 (78.5, 84, 89, 94, 99, 104, 109, 114.5, 119.5, 124.5, 134.5) cm
Intended to be worn with 1 – 2” positive ease in the upper torso. Shown in size 37”/94 cm with 1” ease in the bust.
Talcott is also available as a CustomFit pattern that will be created specifically to your size.
Traditional pattern gauge: 16 stitches and 23 rows = 4 inches / 10 cm in Stockinette Stitch
You can make your Talcott in any gauge you like via CustomFit, but I strongly recommend staying in the worsted-aran range to preserver the look of the cables.
