Knit Chunky Cardigan KAL - Week 3

Updated: Apr 19, 2019

Week 3 - Sleeves

If you're just chiming in now, check out the first and last week's post! We worked on the gauge swatch, casting on, and knitted the collared yoke. Then we separated the sleeves from body of the cardigan & knitted the remaining portion of the body.

Let's recap: We cast on and started the collar. Then we started the Yoke increasing every other row. We then separated the sleeves and placed it on scrap yarn. The remaining body was then completed down to the ribbing. We are ready to place the sleeves back on the needles and finish the cardigan!
