About the pattern

The name for the Forget-Me-Not Cardigan is a tribute to one of my favorite flowers, which brings back childhood memories of watching them emerge in my parents’ garden despite the cool springs. I completely forgot the cardigan during my maternity bubble, it laid neatly folded at the bottom of the closet, almost ready for the pattern to be release. Fortunately, I found it again and was able to finish the pattern. The name serves as a reminder to use our forgotten yarn scraps as well as the clothes hiding in the back of the closet.

The cardigan is worked back and forth, bottom-up, in garter stitch using 8 mm needles. Garter stitch refers to knit sts on both the right and wrong side.

Start out by working the front and back pieces as one, divide the work into 3 sections, and finish the back piece and the 2 front pieces separately. Thereafter, the sleeves are worked bottom-up and sown/crocheted to the armhole openings. The cardigan is finished with a ribbed edge lining the edges. The cardigan has a cozy fit and approx. 10 cm of positive ease.

Note: Garter stitch tends to stretch when used, please keep this in mind when choosing your size.


I alternate between working with 1 or 2 strain(s) held together. I used Drops Snow by itself and a mix of different types of yarn. For instance, combine 1 strain suitable for 5 mm needles together with 1 strain suitable for 3 mm needles or 2 strains suitable for 4/5 mm needles held together. Make sure to explore different combinations when working your gauge swatch. On my website, I have created a guide on how to work with yarn scraps. Read it before you start working, if you need any advice.

Spændende strik i rester

Savnede lidt mere størrelsesguide, syntes modellen i Frejas video havde mere vidde end mit resultat. Go’ guide i at sortere garn ift tykkelser 👍
