Woodburne Cardigan KAL

Difficulty: 4-Complex


Welcome to the Woodburne Cardigan KAL!

Woodburne Cardigan KALThe final KAL in our A Sweater for Every Season series is Woodburne by Carol Feller: The perfect cardigan, fun to knit, great to wear with just the right amount of details. And pockets!!! Pockets make me very happy 🙂 Woodburne is knit in one piece from the bottom up with subtle cable details and a modified saddle shoulder construction. The pattern is written for finished bust sizes 32.25″ – 55.75″.

In this KAL you will learn how to:
  • Make a proper swatch to test your gauge
  • Knit a sweater from the bottom up
  • Read your knitting so you can always tell what row you are on
  • Use a lifeline so you never have to rip all your work out again 
  • Make pockets
  • Do an I-cord bind-off
  • Make a one-row buttonhole
  • Seam your work for a professional finish
  • Read knitting charts

Participants must know how to cast on, knit, purl, cable, and bind off prior to starting this KAL. Having completed a basic sweater in the past will be helpful, but it’s not necessary for adventurous knitters.

  1. hi Beth and Angela
    I was hoping to get in today but hubby needs the car,
    just want to thank you once again for all your help, I discovered
    a mistake in my Woodburne sweater at the button band about 4 rows back,
    didnt want to rip that many rows out I as actually able to just undo that area and
    re knit it! cant even tell! held my breath the whole time, would never have been
    able to do it without your help and watching you do it for me so many times!
    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, this club! and you guys!

  2. Hi Ladies! Can you hear me “whoo hooo”ing from miles away? I finished my Woodburne today and LOVE it! I learned so many new things doing this sweater including the kitchener stitch for finishing. Thanks so much for all your help! I hope to come in next Thursday for “Sit and Spin” to finish up my Project in Sheep’s Clothing. You ladies are the best!
