This design has now been updated to include a fuller collar and a slightly cozier gauge in YOTH Yarns Daugther. The pattern has been reformatted to be part of the new KO design line.
This is the adult version of Gramps. Click here for the child’s version--there is a slight overlap in the sizing! You may also be interested in checking out the KAL thread or the related video tutorial on cabling while decreasing.
Doesn’t your grandpa have a cozy cardigan to wear around the house? Cardigan is worked from the bottom up. Shawl collar is extended with short rows to be wider at the neckline. Cabling is worked on the fronts and modified for the sleeves, and the back is knit in a wide-wale rib. Cable pattern is fully written AND charted. Directions are provided for 3/4 length and full length sleeves.
Knit it oversized to be comfy like Gramps (shown in White), or to your chest measurement for a little more sass (shown in Pink). Design is unisex. Check out the child’s version, the coordinating slouchy hat pattern and even the sweet blankie & leg warmers.
