how do you like your cardigans to fit?

if you like them fitted, choose the chest size closest to your own. no ease fit shown in photos # 2, 3, 5, 7, 8 & 9.

is boyfriend style more your style? go up one pattern size. shown with 2-3” positive east in photos # 1, 4 & 6.

the cardi with the lighter color on top is ‘thunder cloud’ on the bottom as the main color (mc) and ‘dobson’ on the top as a contrast color (cc).

the cardi shown with the darker color on top is ‘ravinia’ on the bottom (as the mc) and ‘kerfuffle’ on top (as the cc).
