Kamila Fitted Cardigan
This is a crochet pattern for a beautiful, fitted, long sleeved cardigan. It uses subtle darting to shape to form and gently swoops in at the waist before skimming over the hips.

I recommend using a smooth mercerised cotton yarn in DK/Light Worsted weight, to give a clear stitch definition.
I have used Drops Muskat Egyptian Cotton and a 4mm hook.
You may also work this pattern in other DK weight yarns for a different finish, eg. wool or acrylic yarn will make more of a woolly cardigan.
You will need:
DK weight yarn - approx. 600g/650g/700g/750g/800g/850g (based on 50g = 109yds)
4mm crochet hook
8 small buttons - 10-12mm in diameter
Sewing needle and thread for buttons
Optional - 6 stitch markers or scrap yarn
