Originally published online in MagKnits. This is a basic stockinette v-neck cardigan with waist shaping and 3/4 sleeves.
Notes from the designer: Because this sweater comes with waist-shaping, ensure you have compared the dimensions with your own measurements to make sure the shaping sits well on your own torso (i.e. if you are on the petite side or on the tall side especially) ;)
To add length to make this a good fit for lower rise jeans/pants, add 1-2 inches in even stockinette before starting the waist shaping decreases.
Please note I am not able to guarantee pattern support for free patterns after their 1st year of release.
This pattern was originally released in 2007.
