Classic cardigan

This classic cardigan was the very first knitting project I completed. When I first learned how to knit, I knew I wanted to knit a cardigan first. It may sound like a complex first project for a complete beginner, but I wanted to challenge myself and decided to go for it. It took me six long months of hard work, but I ended up with a beautiful handmade cardigan.

I relied a lot on a Youtube knitting tutorial explaining the basic knitting stitches and everything I needed to finish the cardigan. The pattern that I used is a free pattern from Yarnspirations. Check out our easy knitting to tutorial that will show you how to knit the basic knitting stitches you will need for this project.


Materials I used:

This cardigan has a beautiful classic design that looks good with everything. I used wool so it would feel keep me warm, but you can use another type of yarn like cotton yarn for a summer cardigan.
