Seed Bomber - Downloadable Chunky Knitting Pattern
The KNIT SAFARI Seed Bomber was one of the first chunky knitting patterns launched by Tiam, and is still a firm favourite among beginner and experienced knitters alike! Designed to add a splash of chunky handmade knitwear to your winter wardrobe - throw this oversized cardigan on with a tee shirt and jeans for an everyday look, or pair with an oversized midi dress for some on-trend casual glamour. And the bonus? It now includes the Youth and Baby knitting pattern, so you and your mini-me can twin in your DIY knitted cardis!
The Seed Bomber is chunky knit cardigan, knitted flat and seamlessly from the hips to underarms, back and forth on a long circular knitting needle, then the fronts and back are knitted separately. The sleeves are worked seamlessly in the round (two-at-a-time on one circular knitting needle if you're feeling adventurous!)
The Seed Bomber is an oversized fit, with a comfy baggy body and oversized sleeves. You may wish to knit a smaller size for a closer fit.
The adult model is a UK size 10 and is wearing the Seed Bomber in size medium. The baby model is wearing a size 6M.

Can't find this yarn near you, or not sure if the yarn in your stash will work? We always recommend that you knit a test swatch to check your gauge before starting out, and finding the right combination of needle size and type and yarn to match the gauge in the pattern.
