This open cardigan is a true adventure in knitting! Combining unique sideways construction, cables, fading and exposed seams to create a flattering oversized dolman style sweater that looks great on all types of figures! Knit in one color or four, to suit your style! This sweater has a beautiful curved underarm that creates a lot of drape for an oversized look, with long, slim cuffs that give you different styling options. You can either wear them long, to accentuate the slender portion of your arm, or cuff them for a shorter sleeve!

Sizes
XS (S, M, L)(XL, XXL)
To fit an actual chest circumference of:
28-32 (34-38, 40-44, 46-50)(52-56, 58-62) inches
71-81.5 (86.5-96.5, 102-112, 117-127)(132-142, 147.5-157.5) cm

Finished Bust Circumference
50 (56, 62, 68)(74, 80) inches
127 (142, 157.5, 173)(188, 203) cm
Intended to be worn with 18-22”/46-56 cm positive ease

To pick the best size for you, measure you full bust, add your preferred ease (18- 22”/46-56 cm) and pick the size closest to that based on the Finished Bust Circumference. If you are between sizes, I recommend sizing down rather than up. You know your style preferences best! Trust your instinct. The sizes in this sweater were graded to give the same ease and drape on the sizes indicated. That being said, if you know that you do not like too much positive ease, then size down one full size.
