The Killdeer Cardigan is for light, bright, breezy summertime walks through the woods. Just enough to keep the sun off your back, the top-down yoked shape dips out gracefully towards softly ruffled sleeve caps, and descends down, with two pockets for comfort and found treasures.
Graceful ties in the front can keep it closed and closer to your body, or open and breezy.

Note: two models, each wearing the size Small. Model with glasses is 5’1”, and model with striped shirt is 5’11”.

Thanks to my great tech editor, Holly Priestley!

Sizing Note
The structure of this cardigan does not rely on your bust measurement, but you should choose the size which is closest to your actual bust measurement. Your Cross Back measurement is the number you will see on the schematic.
For ease of choice, here is the CYC standard of sizing, including the Bust and Cross Back sizes. These are generalized sizes; your Bust and Cross Back measurements may be different sizes from each other. If you would like to measure your Cross Back, you can refer to this link: http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/sizing.html
