Miss Suzanne is a casual, comfortable cardigan that is as easy to knit as it is to wear. This open style cardigan takes its name from one of my knitting friends, a lady who always looks effortlessly stylish and put together. Miss Suzanne is the kind of sweater you’ll want to wear over pajamas on a lazy Sunday morning, or throw on as you run out the door. The simple shape is perfect for showing off a hand-painted yarn and the basic stitches don’t require too much attention. Subtle shaping details keep the knitting interesting.

This open-front cardigan is worked from the top-down in one piece with raglan shaping at the shoulders, and waist shaping at the back. It begins with a provisionally cast on shawl collar which is then worked simultaneously with the body of the cardigan.

XS, (S, M, L, XL, XXL)
To fit bust size: 29-32, (33-35, 36-38, 39-40, 41-43, 44-46) inches

Because this is an open-front style, the sizes are based on the back width at the underarms. For the best fit, choose the size closest to your high bust measurement (the body circumference at the underarms). Please see the schematic for detailed measurements.
There are also notes throughout the pattern to help you to customize the fit.
