Kehinde by Sylvia Watts-Cherry is a traditionally-shaped cardigan with a bold, contrasting stripes-and-slip-stitch pattern that makes this sweater pop! With an easy, classic fit, raglan shaping, this gender-neutral cardigan is a perfect layering piece.

The raglan cardigan is worked flat in one piece from the rib edge to the armholes then split to work the V-neck fronts and back separately and the sleeves are worked flat. The cardigan is knit with a 4-row striped garter stitch pattern with slipped stitches creating the vertical lines.

Sylvia has also designed a matching hat, which is a great way to practice the stitch pattern and make sure you get gauge before jumping into the cardigan pattern!

Kehinde is part of the Better Together collection, six stunning knitting pattern designs from three fabulous knitwear designers.
