Stitch-For-Yourself: Knit Argyle Cardigan Pattern

In a recent blog post, we discussed how important it is to take some time now and then to stitch something just for yourself. The new year is a perfect time to do that. And we have the perfect knitting pattern for you: The Chic Highland, a knit argyle cardigan pattern.

It’s Perfect Because It’s For Advanced Beginners

The perfect project to stitch for yourself challenges your skills a little bit but doesn’t cause you a lot of stress. This is a very straightforward, easy-knit cardigan pattern. However, there’s a twist – the argyle, which is made with intarsia knitting.

The argyle print isn’t difficult if you follow the video tutorials that are linked in the free pattern. The pattern also includes notes that will help you if you’re new to intarsia knitting. The combination of notes and video support should make working on this project relatively easy, even if you’re an advanced beginner.

Although it should be fairly easy, this knit argyle cardigan pattern gives you something special. This combination of an easy cardigan pattern along with a part of it that requires a little bit more focus is perfect for a stitch-for-you project.

It’s Perfect Because It’s Fun to Wear

When you stitch something for yourself, you should enjoy wearing it. The knit argyle cardigan pattern gives you a garment you should enjoy. The pops of color in the argyle print are statement-making.

This knit argyle cardigan pattern comes in seven sizes, making it an inclusive design. It’s flattering on many different figures.

Put it over a black dress to make it snazzy. Wear it with jeans so that it’s the piece that stands out. Have fun adding this to your wardrobe.

And when people inevitably ask you about that great cardigan that you’re wearing, you can say, “I knit it myself!”

The Perfect Knit Argyle Cardigan Pattern is COZY

Although oversized and warm, this knit argyle cardigan is also lightweight, so you can easily layer it. You can wear it in multiple seasons of the year. The wool yarn is truly delightful to work with and to wear. What better type of project to make for yourself than one that feels super cozy?
