1. Getting Started

1. Getting Started

Meet Caddy and begin class with a brief overview of your project: an oversized open-front cardigan. You'll learn how to choose the right size for your sweater, and how to make and measure a gauge swatch in the basket rib stitch pattern.

2. Knitting the Back

2. Knitting the Back

Start your sweater by knitting the back piece. Cast on and knit the ribbing, then start working the basket rib pattern. You'll see how to balance the binding and work in the pattern to shape the shoulders.

3. The Right Front

3. The Right Front

Work the right front of your sweater by casting on and knitting the ribbing. Caddy shows you how to use decreasing stitches to shape the neck and shoulders for a stylish look.
