I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get around to releasing this pattern. I do love the Aline Modular Cardigan and like my other garment patterns, it’s sized from small to plus-size with options to customize sleeve width, length etc.

I used some Debbie Bliss BFL Aran for mine, but any heavy Worsted or Aran weight yarn should be fine as long you as you get the right tension/gauge.
The garment is worked in garter stitch, with iCord edgings and some short row side panels (for the optional Aline shaping). It’s an easy knit and I’ve included photos of the stages and a diagram showing the joins, pick up edges and direction of knitting for each section.
As always I’d like to thank my incredible test knitters, they are:
Mirella, JHankie, CarleneRuns, CoonPrairie and GreatMinds and I hope you like their photos and Carlene’s modifications.
Carlene altered her side panels to be symmetrical, which worked well with her self striping yarn and adapted sizing to make the lower body slightly larger than the upper body. It looks fabulous on her and I love the colours. She also raised the neckline, I’ve added information on how you can do that if you too live in a cooler climate.
