This year's cardigan is offered in 2 gauges (DK and Worsted) and multiple sizes: 

  • DK: 32.74 (37.69, 41.5, 46.45, 49.12, 53.69, 59.4, 62.07, 65.12) in
  • Worsted: 34.3 (39.5, 43.5, 48.7, 51.5, 56.3, 62.3, 65.1, 68.3) in

I knit my sample in Madelinetosh Wool + Cotton, a 50/50 wool/cotton blend that is perfect for wearing year round. I even achieved both offered gauges, but decided to go with the Worsted option in order to make the size 43" bust that I wanted (that gives me zero inches ease, as you can tell by how I am wearing my cardigan). I also made a slight modification and made 3/4 sleeves so I can wear my sweater in warmer weather (the pattern is written for long sleeves).

We have many other great yarn choices, depending on the fiber content you would like most. Check them all out (and their required number of skeins) on our special collection page for the 2022 #4dayKAL!

Yardage: 900 (1000, 1100, 1210, 1331, 1464, 1611, 1772, 1949) yards (these estimates translate nicely for both DK and worsted weight, but may vary slightly according to your yarn selection)

  • Hi! I am trying to find the color combinations for the 4 day knit along that you mentioned in the video. You mentioned there were pictures of the different colors suggestions along with how much yarn would be needed. I can’t seem to find them on your shop website. I really like the color combination of the sweater you knit. Thank you! 😊

    Hi Griselda, this page gives yarn quantities by size for several of the yarns we suggest, along with links to the yarns to see more details/colors for each: We also posted more color inspirations (we couldn’t stop coming up with ideas!) on our blog here: Thank you! >
