Need a Plus Size Cardigan? Knit In Now Course
This Cabin Fever Book was written for hand knitters, but machine knitters can use the book with great success to create beautiful top down raglan sleeve cardigans that fit!

The authors, Deb Gemmell and Robin Hunter have spent quite a bit of time interviewing, measuring, teaching and working with knitters of all shapes and sizes. The result is an excellent book that allows you to custom fit your cardigan for your shape!

The instructions are written for 6 gauges (from 14 - 24 stitches in 4") - so you can use your standard, mid-gauge or bulky machine for your project.

The book begins with a basic cardigan to get you started. Once you've mastered the top down concepts and incorporated the fit changes for you, the book give lots of options to let you be creative and make sweaters that not only fit, but reflect your style!
Please note, this is not a beginner project. You need to have experience with your machine.

The Home Study Course does not include the book. A digital version is now available on Ravelry Ravelry eBook
