This cardigan is an easygoing and versatile fall garment.
You can dress it with woolly slacks for a preppy look but it will also look perfect with your favorite pair of jeans & t-shirt.
Belted or not, there are many possibilities for this cardigan that enhances the female bodies and gives comfort.

The cardigan is worked top-down and fits with 0 (when belted) to +1 ease (when loosely belted or open).
A video showing raglan increases is available.
The central back part of the belt is worked along the piece. The bands are worked later, picking up stitches from the back part of the belt on each side.
The 3 stitches at the beginning and at the end of each row, worked as the directions, will create an I-cord finishing along the front sides.
