Note
This Cardigan is worked in pieces and seamed together.

The pattern would convert easily to working seamlessly/in the round but I would not recommend it unless you have substituted a bouncy stretchy 100% wool yarn. Karma is about as light and bouncy as a cotton yarn can be, but it still benefits from the structure and stability that the sewn seams adds and this will ensure that the cardigan holds its shape over time and with lots and lots of wear.

Choose a size based on the finished measurement that most closely matches body measurements.

Errata: Size 42, sleeves increase 3x more for final stitch count of 45 not 47 stitches
