For the year 2018, I made it a goal to create more designs for men and boys. There are now 4 patterns in the Dude Collection, with the newest release, the Dude Cardigan!
I just love this blazer style sweater on my hubby! He helped me design it too! He gave me the idea and he gave me lots of ideas and tips along the way! It turned out exactly the way we pictured it!
The Dude Cardigan is great for date night, church,a casual occasion, or family pictures!
The pattern difficulty for this sweater is intermediate. It is worked from the bottom up with sleeves and trim added at the end.
This sweater is fitted with only 1/2″ to 1″ of positive ease. For a looser fit, go up one size.
The pattern calls for four 2″ buttons, but you can go with smaller buttons if you like, or not buttons at all.
This pattern is also very gender neutral and would look great as a women’s cardigan as well!
The Dude Cardigan is made with Knit Picks Brava Worsted, which is one of my favorite yarns! It is very soft, yet durable and washes up great! The color choices are outstanding! However, you can use any worsted weight (#4) yarn you prefer.
This cardigan comes in sizes Small to 2X!
