The Ralph Cardigan embodies classic and minimalism. Its relaxed and comfortable fit offers the perfect blend of style and comfort. With its buttoned front, it's ideal for layered looks and can serve as an outerwear piece. A choice for those who appreciate refined design and functionality.

The Ralph Cardigan is worked top-down in stockinette stitch back and forth. It starts with the back, followed by two separate shoulders. Short rows are used to ensure a snug fit at the shoulders. Once completed, the stitches are joined to work the body. Next, stitches are picked up along the armholes to work the sleeves in the round. Finally, stitches are picked up along the edge to work the front edge using double knitting.

The garment in the photo is knitted in Superwool by Mondial [col. 600]; Silkhair by Lana Grossa [col. 058]

    Sizes:

    XS / S / M / L / XL / 2XL / 3XL
    The Ralph Cardigan has an oversized fit for the body and a relaxed fit for the sleeves and is designed to have approx. 30 cm [12 in] of positive ease with slightly reduced ease in larger sizes, to ensure a more comfortable fit. This means the garment's measurements will be approx. 30 cm [12 in] larger than your actual bust circumference.

    The sizes XS / S / M / L / XL /2XL / 3XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 / 85-90 / 90-95 / 95-100 / 100-110 /110-120 / 120-130 cm [31½-33½ / 33½-35½ / 35½-37½ / 37½-39½ / 39½-43¼ / 43¼-47¼ / 47¼-51¼ in].

    Before you begin, measure yourself to determine the right size. For example, if your bust circumference is 90 cm [35 in], you should knit a size M. If you are between sizes, choose the size based on how loose you prefer the sweater to fit. Using the diagram with the finished garment measurements can be a helpful reference when deciding which size to select.
