Have you always wanted to knit a beautiful, basic cardigan? With this simple and clear written pattern you can get started knitting your own oversized cardigan. The SOPHIA CARDIGAN is an oversized Bernadette-like cardigan, with special wide balloon sleeves. You can knit this design in many colors or color combinations. You can even choose to add an extra (decorative) strand, like a glittery yarn to give your cardigan that extra sparkle. 

I believe that the cardigan is not very difficult to knit, but you do need some knitting experience. The techniques you need for this knitting pattern are:

  • Knit (K) and purl (P) stitches alternated (rib stitch)
  • Knit (K) and purl (P) rows alternated (stockinette stitch)
  • Increasing and decreasing stitches
  • Mattress stitch

The knitting pattern contains one size and has an oversized fit. The cardigan is worked up in five separate parts. The cardigan is very oversized if it’s worn as a size S, and has a regular fit if it’s worn as a size XL. The length and/or width of the design can be adjusted to your own wishes. If you make any adjustments to the length and/or width, you will need extra yarn.


  • Straight knitting needles: 10 mm (US 15 / UK 000) and 12 mm (UK 000)
  • Tapestry needle to seam the cardigan up.
  • Scissors

Approx. 600 - 650 meters for every strand. The total meterage depends on the amount of strands held together. I used Kid-Annell from Annell (color 3170) for the sample as shown in the pictures. The fiber content of this yarn is 80% mohair and 20% polyester (25 grams – 100 meters). The recommended needle size is 4,5 – 5 mm (UK 7 – 6 / US 7 – 8). I used a little less than 18 balls, holding 3 strands together. 

Any yarn or yarn combination suitable for a 12 mm needle can be used to knit this cardigan. I recommended knitting a swatch, especially when using a substitute yarn.

Further information is described in the pattern. If you have any questions, please send a message. After ordering this digital product, you will receive a digital pattern (PDF-file) with which you can knit a cardigan yourself. You will not receive a finished project!
