Featherweight is now available in two formats!
The original pattern, available here, from your LYS and in the book Knitbot Essentials are traditional patterns, written in multiple sizes, with a fixed gauge and a top-down raglan construction. Your purchase of the individual pattern through Ravelry includes the FRENCH TRANSLATION.
The set-in sleeve, CustomFit version of Featherweight will give you a sweater that looks like the original sweater, but all of the pattern numbers have been created exclusively to match your gauge, your body measurements, and your length/sleeve preferences. For the fully customizable version of Featherweight, go HERE. (Note, CustomFit requires free log in account.)
Since it’s release in 2009, Featherweight Cardigan has been wildly popular among knitters worldwide. Many variations of this sweater have been knit, with Ravelry boasting over 6500 projects cast on.

Note: This pattern was revised in May of 2010. New sizes have been added. In addition, issues with the sleeves coming out too large were addressed. Keep in mind when you are reading other knitters project notes that they were working from the original pattern!
