Notes From the Designer:

Storyteller is a simply timeless wearable piece designed with comfort in mind. This cardigan is knit from the top down with Raglan styling and seamless construction.

The main features of this design are the set-in pockets, trimmed edges using simple ribbing, and the huckleberry stitch pattern that is reminiscent of the Mark Twain stories that have been a part of early childhood reading memories for generations.

  • Gauge is VERY crucial to this project and should be worked in Huckleberry Stitch Pattern. Be sure to check your gauge often.
  • This pattern is worked flat back and forth through the yoke and body sections and then worked in the round for the sleeves.
  • Sample was worked in size X-Small.
  • Instructions for making the cardigan without ​pockets or adjusting the length are included in the Notes section of the pattern.
  • Click the Videos tab to learn how to knit two sleeves at the same time! Not required for this pattern, but fun to know!
