This relaxed, tunic-length cardigan in five sizes (XS, S/M, M/L, XL, XXL) features a soft shape and a subtle fabric texture, with pleated borders along the center front edges, which rise to form a standing collar around the neck. Fit is softly oversized; this design is best worked in a softly spun yarn to encourage a luxurious drape throughout the sweater body. All pieces are worked flat, bottom up, and seamed afterward.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size
