Felix Cardigan by Amy Christoffers

Felix is a cropped top down raglan cardigan with an eyelet motif incorporated into the raglan increases.

Pattern available to buy from HERE(Ravelry link)

Amy says “This was designed to be the perfect sweater to wear layered over tunics and dresses, I like it with waisted pants as well. I suggest putting all the stitches on waste yarn and trying the sweater on before you begin the ribbing to be sure you have a length you will like and will enjoy wearing.”

This is a very easy and very quick knit with aran weight yarn worked at a relaxed open gauge.

Felix calls for an worsted/ light Aran weight yarn. We’ve done some swatching and found that one strand of our Cheviot Marsh lambswool 4ply held together with one strand of our Yeavering Bell mohair 4ply meets the gauge of the pattern and creates a lovely lofty fabric with a halo of mohair. Soft and gorgeous. Choose two colours that compliment each other and get ready to snuggle in your new favourite knit.


39 (43 ½, 48, 52 ½, 57)” around chest at underarm
Shown in size 43 1/3, worn with 7” of positive ease.

Selecting the correct amount of ease is a very personal, please choose a size based on your own preferences, a range between 2 to 10” of ease is suggested for this garment. Please note the body can be made any length but plan to purchase more yarn if lengthening.
