What You'll Need
Before you get started, you'll need a few supplies:

Step-by-Step InstructionsStep 1:
Choose your yarn
- Choose a yarn that is soft and comfortable to wear.

Determine the size
- Use a tape measure to determine your bust circumference.
- Add a few inches to this measurement to allow for ease and choose the appropriate size to knit.
- Using the main color, cast on the number of stitches for the size you've chosen.
Knit the back
- Knit in stockinette stitch until the back measures the desired length.
- Add any design elements you'd like, such as cables or lace panels.
Knit the fronts
- Using the same design elements as the back, knit the two front panels separately in stockinette stitch.
- Shape the neckline by decreasing stitches at the center front.
Knit the sleeves
- Using the same design elements as the body, knit the sleeves in the round.
- Decrease as necessary to shape the sleeve cap.
- Seam the shoulders and sides of the cardigan.
- Pick up stitches along the front edges and neckline to knit a ribbed collar.
- Knit a few rounds of ribbing at the bottom of the cardigan and on the cuffs of the sleeves.
- Bind off and weave in any loose ends.
