Love Bomber Knitting pattern - Purlfoundry
Introducing the Love Bomber knitting pattern! This cozy drop-shoulder cardigan is made with thick yarn and chunky needles, allowing it to knit up in record time. Featuring a ribbed neckline, over-sized fit, and balloon cuffs, this cardigan is sure to become a staple in your wardrobe. The heart motif on the back adds a touch of whimsy.
This is a printed pattern. Beautifully printed and folded into A DLE envelope brochure size, this will be posted to you.
The Love Bomber comes in three size options and is knit from the bottom up as one piece before dividing off at the underarms. The sleeves are knit in the round from top down, making for a seamless finish.
Please note that due to the bulky yarn used in this pattern, it is not recommended to use straight needles. We suggest using circular needles to accommodate the extra length.
This pattern is best suited for advanced level knitters and above. For those who prefer visual aids, the pattern includes a chart for the heart motif. Start knitting your own Love Bomber today and enjoy the process of creating a cozy, statement cardigan!

We try our best to make our photos as accurate as possible but every screen displays colour slightly differently, so we cannot guarantee complete accuracy. Hand-dyed yarns vary from one batch to the next so there will always be some variation between the photo and each individual skein.
Part of the hand dyed allure is each skein's individuality. This gives final objects depth and nuance. With this in mind we recommend alternating skeins (every other row in flat knitting and every row in circular knitting) on larger projects creating a more cohesive blend.
