Hannah Fettig's extremely popular Featherweight Cardigan is now available via CustomFit!

Featherweight is an easy and versatile knit, making it a great first sweater for beginner knitters. The CustomFit version of Featherweight is a set-in sleeve, pieced garment that can be made with a variety of sleeve and hem lengths. Each CustomFit Featherweight pattern has been crafted especially for your body, using your own gauge numbers - so not only can chose your sweater's body and sleeve lengths, you can work it in any gauge you like, too!

To achieve the lighter-than-air style of the sweater shown, use any lace-weight or fingering yarn. The original Featherweight was knit using lace weight yarn knit at 6 sts per inch / 24 sts per 10cm. Also, the original sweater is worked with a 3/4 sleeve length and a high hip length, but both of those options can be customized to suit you!

Featherweight by Hannah Fettig (CustomFit version) is $12.50 or one credit.
