With this simple and clear written pattern you can get started knitting your own oversized cardigan. The TEARDROP CARDIGAN is an oversized Bernadette-like cardigan, with my special signature sleeves. The cardigan has a wide fit and wide sleeves with a special combination of stitches. 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)
  • Mattress stitch (to put the cardigan together)

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)
  • Circular knitting needles: 6 mm (US10 / UK4) and 10 mm (US 15 / UK 000) - 40 or 60 cm (24’’).
  • Tapestry needle to seam the cardigan up.
  • Stitch markers
  • Scissors

For this cardigan I used a combination of 2 different yarns (holding 5 strands together).

  • 16 skeins Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk in the color 20 pink sand (per skein: 25 grams / 140 meters – total: 400 grams / 2240 meters).
  • 7 skeins Ice Yarns Rock Star in the color Light Salmon (per skein: 50 grams / 115 meters – total: 350 grams / 805 meters). I worked 4 strands Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk and 1 strand Ice Yarns Rock Star.

    Any yarn or yarn combination suitable for a 10 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!
