Fast-Track® is one of our most versatile yarns yet. You can make anything from home decor to bags to clothing. It creates a nice, sturdy shape when worked with a tight gauge, but it can also work into soft, comfortable garments. One of our favorite bloggers, Two of Wands, has designed a cute boyfriend cardigan to knit with this yarn.
If you want to make this sweater now, the kit is 25% off from Feb. 17-24!
The cotton-poly blend of Fast-Track® makes it soft and drapey, like your favorite t-shirt, while the flat, woven tape shape of the yarn creates a unique stitch pattern. The shape makes this a category 6, or super bulky, yarn while still being lightweight. It’s a perfect all-season yarn, making garments you can wear any time.
The Oxford Boyfriend Cardigan is super versatile and useful. Plus it’s such a comfy yarn that you’ll never want to take it off. You can dress it up or down, and wear it almost anywhere at any time. In winter it’s great for layering, and in warmer weather it’s perfect to throw on in the evening or underneath an overzealous air conditioner.
The pattern is available in two sizes — S/M and L/XL — and takes either six or seven skeins of yarn. You can purchase a kit here (remember, it’s 25% off from Feb. 17-24!)to make it. As you can see from the pictures, it looks great over a basic casual outfit like jeans and a tee, but you could make it work for other occasions as well. With a belt and pencil skirt, it could go to work, or with the right dress it could be great for a night out with friends.
We also have several other patterns for Fast-Track® — from garments to housewares — available in our pattern database. It works up great in both knit and crochet, and is also great for other crafts! Get creative, and you’ll make something excellent.
