The Timepiece Cardigan by Ailbíona McLochlainn
Pattern can be purchased directly from Ailbíona here:
This versatile cardigan pattern from Ailbíona blends 20th Century references from the tennis cardigans of the 1920s to Kurt Cobain's MTV Unplugged sweater, creating a contemporary silhouette.
As with so many of Ailbíona's designs, this pattern is written with many ways in which to adapt and change for tailoring to your own style. There are instructions for both Aran and DK yarns, cropped or full length, there are also pockets and contrast stripes which are simple yet effective details.
