Size
XXL
S (M) L (XL) can be bought in the Pickles shop

Yarn
Abuelita organic cotton
400 g of colour #1, 200 g of colour #2 and 200 g of colour #3

We´ve knitted it in Beach Lounge, Stone and Pistachio. You will find more colour combinations at the bottom of this pattern.

Needles
Long circular and DPN´s, US 4 and 6 or whatever needles you need to achieve the right gauge (important)

Gauge
19 s= 4” Stockinette

Pattern
Cast on 243 s on US 4 needles. Make ribbing:
Row 1: K3, *P1, K3* until end of row.
Row 2: P3, * K1, P3* until end of row.

Repeat row 1 and 2 until you have 3" of ribbing. Change your needles to US 6 and continue in stockinette. M1 s as you knit the first round of stockinette. = 244 s. PM in each side. Continue until your piece measures 16.5". Bind off 8 s under each arm. (4 s before and 4 s after each marker) = 114 s for the back and 57 s on each of the front pieces. Put it aside and knit the arms:

Arms:
Cast on 48 s on US 4 DPN´s And knit ribbing in the round: K3, P1 until you have 3" of ribbing. Change your needles to US 6 and continue in stockinette. PM at the beginning of the round. M4 s as you knit the first round of stockinette. = 52 s.

Continue until your piece measures 5.5". You are now going to increase 2 s on every 2nd round. Repeat the following rounds until you have 122 s.
Round 1: K until you have 1 s left before your marker. M1, K2, M1. Knit the rest of the round.
Round 2: Knit.

Bind off 8 s under each arm. (4 s before and 4 s after each marker). = 114 s. Put all your pieces onto the same needle (US 4). PM at the beginning and end of each arm. Purl one row from the wrong side. Then repeat the following rows 10 times:
Row 1: K2tog, knit 1 s past the first marker, K2tog. Knit until you have 3 s left before your next marker, K2tog. Repeat the decrease for the other arm. Knit until you have 2 s left on the needle, K2tog.
Row 2: Purl.

Then repeat the following rows 4 times:
Row 1: Knit 1 s past the first marker, K2tog. Knit until you have 3 s left before your next marker, K2tog. Repeat the decrease for the other arm. Knit until end of row.
Row 2: Purl.

Then repeat the following rows until you have 2 s left before the first marker:
Row 1: Knit until you have 3 s left before the first marker, K2tog. K2, K2tog. Knit until you have 3 s left before the second marker, K2tog. K2, K2tog. Repeat the decrease for the other arm.
Row 2: Purl.

Put the remaining stitches on a thread or extra needle if you have one. Pick up stitches up along the front. Pick up about 4.5 s pr inch. When you reach the neck, knit the stitches you had on to the same needle before you pick up the same number of s down the other side. Count your stitches. You want a multiple of 4, + 3 s. Increase or decrease as you knit the first row of K3, P1 ribbing.

We made a narrow front band (0.7”) wich makes the edge kind of roll in while the cardigan is open. If you want a sturdy edge, make it really wide (4”), fold and sew it in.
 
If you want button holes, distribute them evenly along the edge up until the neck opening decrease starts. Make them in a purl stitch like this: K3, P1, K3 and so on until you reach the point where you want your button hole. (Right before a purl stitch). YO, K2tog, K2. Continue the ribbing.

I'm interested in purchasing the downloadable pattern for the Cool Cardigan, but the website is adding shipping charges. Is there a way to remedy this? Apologies for leaving this question here, but I could not locate an email link. Thanks!

Hi Jillian, there was an error in the shop, go to the downloadable patterns section (left menu) and it should work now :) However, the downloadable patterns are more expensive as we like to give our yarn customers cheap patterns. ($4 for the downloadable ones after tax is deducted:)

Heelo, i was thinking of starting another project, but i cant seem to understand what to do. How does 243 s fit on one US 4 needle?!??? and how do you make the whole for the arms?? its all so confusing! please give me a word of advice! >.<

juli 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterIcey

ps. What does PM stand for? and thank you~

juli 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterIcey

Icey, they fit fine, that of course depends on the lenght of your needles. (circular) :)

You knit the arms separately and then join everything in a classic raglan decrease. PM means Place Marker.

Good luck with your project!

Hej Ytterligare en fundering kring mönstret.
När jag skall sätta alla maskor från fram o bakstydke + ärmarna på en och samma sticka skall jag då plocka upp de 8 avmaskade maskorna från ärm och fram-bakstycke? Jag kan inte se att man skall sy ihop maskorna under ärmen men ser heller ingen förklaring att de skall plockas upp.

Hei Kerstin, de skal sys isammen under armen tilslutt. Altså ikke plukkes opp. :)

Hi !
Automn is coming and I would like to make this nice vest !
But before, I have a small question, I just want to know wich size is the one on the picture ! Because I would like it not too tight, and I'm afraid that the small one won't make this effect ...

Thank you ! And I really love your work :)

september 23, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTurion

Turion, the picture shows a size S.

:) Thanks

september 23, 2010 | Registered Commenterpickles

Hello, I've recently purchased the pattern and I am really excited to get started but it doesn't say when to switch the colours. How many rows should I make before I should switch?

Thanks

januar 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBrigitte

what is the best size for me if my shoulder is 17-18 inches?

januar 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterjehan

Jehan, we use yarnstandards.com for sizing, please check your measurements there. The size on the model is a size S btw ;)

januar 20, 2011 | Registered Commenterpickles

On the pattern it reads to put a stitch marker on each side but how many stitches are before the stitch marker?

februar 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

Half the stiches are for the front, half for the back;)

februar 13, 2011 | Registered Commenterpickles

Hey I just started the sweater and got a goot way into the ribbing before i realized something was off so i've got a few questions about your pattern.
1. It says size xxl is that really the size or have i misread that
2. the gauge is 19stiches = 4 inches correct?
3. If that gauge is correct then what is the correct needle size because unless you are using incredibly bulky yarn US 4 and 6 cannot be right.
Now I am fairly new to knitting but I have never had this much trouble please help me!

juli 8, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBeadingmonkey

Hi, the information is correct ;) We used the yarn stated in the pattern.

juli 11, 2011 | Registered Commenterpickles

Hej!

I have the same question as Brigitte, but I couldn't find the answer... After how many rows (or cm or in) do you change colours?

Thank's for your help!

juli 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKerstin

Hi, we knitted 20 rows of the first grey, then 12 rows of each colour

juli 15, 2011 | Registered Commenterpickles

HI I recently bought this pattern and slightly confused on how to PM--is it on the edge of the knitting like the first and last stitch of each row? or on each side of my added stitch? Because it says bind off 8 s (4 on each side of the markers) well that would be impossible if I used my made stitch. SO pretty much I am asking were on my row I am suppose to place my markers for the arms. Thank you so much
