Knitting Preview: November 16, 2019

In this week’s knitting preview, check out this vibrant and cosy piece of knitwear.

Capture all the sensational colours of the season in this longer-length cardigan.

You don’t need fancy stitches to show off a variegated yarn. So we have created a versatile V-neck cardigan, enhanced with a simple cable and eyelet pattern. It is worked over a four-row pattern.

The cardigan comes in five sizes ranging from 76/81 cm (30/32 ins) to 117/122 cm (46/48 ins). Actual size is around 7 – 12 cm (2½ – 4½ ins) bigger.

The yarn is Stylecraft Batik Elements DK in shade Magnesium (1940). It is one of eleven shades in the range, all designed to create a beautiful melange of colour. If you would like to view the other shades or find a stockist, visit

With costs of around £21 – £25 to make, excluding buttons, this is a great value design.
