The Boxy Cardigan knitting pattern is the perfect choice for anyone looking to create a comfortable, and stylish boxy garment to wear during the summer. With a design that's both classic and contemporary, this knit pattern is sure to become a staple in your summer wardrobe. The pattern is designed to be made using soft and breathable cotton yarn, making it ideal for warm weather. The boxy shape and easy-to-wear style make it perfect for layering over your favourite summer outfits.

The Boxy Cardigan is worked from the top down, with the backs and fronts worked separately before joining. The rest of the garment is worked back and forth without shaping to the desired length. The sleeves are picked up and worked in the round and the collar is picked up and worked to finish.
