Knit up a smoking jacket-style cardigan in Quarry for a plush and cozy outer layer this autumn. The overall fabric of moss stitch creates gentle texture that shows off Quarry’s flecks and striations, and a subtle A-line shape with raglan shoulders makes Tamarack easy to wear. Choose between a short ribbed band for the fronts or a shawl collar band shaped with short rows. Optional patch pockets and a belt secured with i-cord complete the look.


  • 1340 (1480, 1690, 1845, 2065, 2220) yards of chunky weight yarn


  • 7 (8, 9, 10, 11, 12) skeins Brooklyn Tweed Quarry (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 200 yards/100 grams)
  • Sample photographed in color Sulphur
  • 14 stitches & 22 rows = 4″ in Moss Stitch with Size A needle(s), after blocking
  • Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated row gauge.

Size A (for Main Fabric)

  • One 32″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
  • Suggested Size: 6½ mm (US 10½)

Size B (for Ribbing)

  • One each 32″ and 47″ circular needles and one set of DPNs* three sizes smaller than Size A Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)

Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only)

  • One 32″ circular needle and one set of DPNs* one size smaller than Size B Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)

*32″ circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (e.g. Sleeves).

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
