Nomin Cardigan

Updated: Feb 5

This is an English pattern for an oversized long cardigan called Nomin.

The word Nomin means a farmer who works with soil. It is inspired by a haori, a Japanese-style jacket worn over kimono.

It is very simple and easy to knit, which requires only basic knitting techniques. Also, it is super easy to make modifications according to your height and body size.

Please note that this pattern has no specific instructions about the color combinations or yarn to use. Because choosing yarn and playing with color is the most fun part, so I wanted you to play with color and create your own Nomin. However, I included color guides that may inspire you!!

** The yarn used to knit a model garment is my handspun yarn. (Not available for sale) The yarn weight is about worsted to Aran (1.9m/g yarn).

** The pattern has a very simplified modification note for a short-length version.
