Patternum Gratis: Trina Cardigan

One year ago today, I posted about Trina, a cardigan I had made, improvising the pattern as I went. Well, it took a whole year, but I've written a pattern for it and it is now available as a free download from Ravelry and below.


Pattern: Trina Cardigan (click here to download now)
Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL)
Finished Measurements: 28” (32”, 36”, 40”, 44”, 48”, 52”, 56”) bust
Yarn Requirements: 650 (725, 825, 900, 1000, 1100, 1200, 1275) yards of aran weight yarn - the original was made with Classic Elite Skye Tweed, which has now been discontinued.
Needles: US 8 circular needle and dpns
Gauge: 16 stitches x 24 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch


If anyone who makes this sweater has questions or encounters any form of pattern weirdness, please let me know and I will sort it out asap!
