Amy Christoffers' Felix Cardigan is a cropped, top-down beauty with an eyelet motif incorporated into the raglan increases. This perfect layering piece is knit up in Kelbourne Woolens Lucky Tweed (100% merino), a 2-ply offering that hits that elusive worsted/Aran sweet spot with beautiful deep colors.
Felix Cardigan is available in 5 sizes. This cardigan is intended to be worn with a range of positive ease, from 2 to 10” depending on your personal preference. The sizes listed below correspond to the actual measurement of the finished garment, so to achieve the recommended fit, please choose a size that is 2-10" larger than your bust measurement at its fullest point.

You will need a US8 16” and 24” or longer circular needle, a US10 16” and 24” or longer circular needle, and US8 and US10 DPNs (or size needed to achieve gauge). If you wish to do the optional tubular cast on, you will also need a US5 circular or straight needle of any length.
