This simple cardigan is a top-down raglan that is knit flat and seamless. The crewneck is shaped while working the yoke. The subtle back pleat gives a little extra room, which adds to the beauty of the finished piece. With the option to add buttons or an i-Cord closure, La Riga Cardigan will be an enjoyable piece to knit up and wear!
As a fun fact, the name “La Riga” stems from the word “the line” in Italian. For me, the clean back loop ribbing of the lower body, sleeve cuffs, neck back and front bands makes this simple cardigan stand out.
It is made with 1 - 2” / 2.5 - 5 cm of positive ease in mind.
If using Lion Brand Wool-Ease Recycled Yarn as per sample in pattern, you will need: 5 (6, 7, 7, 8) (8, 9, 10, 11) skeins.
It is available as a knit kit from Lion Brand. You would get all the yarn required for your size of interest, along with the complimentary pattern. To purchase the kit, please use my affiliate link here. Please note that I receive a small commission without any additional cost to you :)
I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did, and still do!
