Funky Grandpa
by rililie Follow

This retro inspired cardigan has an ample and boxy shape - which is updated by it’s extra long sleeves and fun stripes in different sequences. 
The deep feminine neckline and the use of blocks of colour add interest and enhance the overall shape by modernizing an otherwise traditional and masculine garment. 
It is completely seamless and worked almost in one piece, from the top down. The sleeves and the buttonband are done with short rows and by picking up stitches from the body. 
The resulting garment is very light and comfortable, since it is done out of fingering weight sock yarn.
