Charlotte is a classic cardigan with a relatively simple cut. Its eye-catching confetti pattern is distinctive. It can either be knitted using the stranded technique or subsequently embroidered by using the duplicate stitch. I used a combinationi of both techniques. But of course, you may replace the pattern by your own preferences (e. g. stripes). Charlotte is worked in single parts from bottom to top.

S, M, L, XL and XXL

Bust circumferences (of cardigan):
35”, 37”, 39”, 41” and 45” (= 89, 95, 100, 104 and 114 cm)

I used Drops Merino Extra Fine (yardage 115 yds per ball); approx 400/450/450/500/550 g light grey (# 05) and 100/100/150/150/150/200 g dark grey (# 03)


US 6 (4 mm) circular or straight needles (or any size to obtain gauge)

7 buttons, 23 mm Ø

1 tapestry or chenille needle (in case you prefer to embroider the confetti pattern). Chenille needles have large eyes & sharp points. Tapestry needles have large eyes & duller points, and are commonly used for duplicate stitch.
