Free Pattern Friday: Striped Cardigan

This cardigan from Classic Elite has a very basic name to suit a very basic sweater.  That sounds like a knock but it's not, though; it’s the basics that get the most wear, so I won’t turn my nose up at a cardigan like this one.  It looks super cute over a dress, the same way the sample is styled.

The pattern includes options for cardigan length and sleeve length so it’s very customizable, and you could mix it up infinitely in terms of colours.  Curiously, the pattern is written with the sleeves being knit flat and then seamed, though this is easy enough to change if you want to, and if you eliminate the sleeve seams there is very minimal finishing indeed.  Plus, bulky weight yarn! You could start this at the beginning of Spring Break and be done by the end of the week, I bet.
