Pontefract

The little cardigan that goes with everything, perfect for any occasion. Add some interest to this wardrobe essential with a color popping yoke detail.


Pontefract is worked from the top down in two colors. This simple cardigan features stripes of garter stitch and eyelets on the yoke. Short-row shaping is used to create a scooped neckline while waist shaping gives this hip-length cardigan a subtle hourglass curve. The garter-stitch front bands are finished with an attached i-cord edging and button loops, giving an edgy color pop to this otherwise streamlined cardigan.


The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Only written instructions are given for the stitch patterns. The pattern includes a step-by-step photo tutorial for making the i-cord button loops.
