It’s been over two years since I published my very first sweater pattern, I Heart Aran. That design, the one that got me passionate about designing my own knits, is still one of my most popular patterns. How to improve upon a classic? Cardigan-ize it! Pullovers are great, but nothing beats a cozy cardigan. My I Heart Cardigans design borrows the same classic look from I Heart Aran; a shawl collar and set in sleeves, but with switched up cables and a generous button band. If you like aran sweaters, you’ll love this aran cardigan!

This sweater is worked flat in one piece, from the bottom up, until the underarms where it is then divided for the fronts and back. The sleeves are knit in the round until the sleeve cap shaping where it is then worked flat.
