It’s a sweater knitted from side to side from one wrist to the next one, with seams under the sleeves and on the body sides.
The pattern is written for size 3,5 mm (4US) needles, but while testing I experimented and tries the pattern in the same size with larger needles, 4,5 mm (7US) and thicker yarn and I liked the final effect.
I always suggest to try on the work in progress, to check size, ease, and wearability. By doing this, you can knit the perfect fit for your body shapes. In fact, everybody is different and sometimes only some small changes can make the difference, as making the cardigan longer or wider. Don’t be afraid to customize your Laigueglia to adapt it for a perfect fit.
