A relaxed-fit, round neck cardigan with button fastening, crocheted in an open texture using an aran yarn. Perfect for spring, autumn and cooler summer days. The sides of the body are straight and the sleeves are tapered along the length then gathered before the cuffs.

Fits bust sizes 77 (83: 89: 94: 100: 106: 112: 118) cm / 30 (33: 35: 37: 39: 42: 44: 46) inches. The actual measurement of the cardigan from underarm to underarm is 43.5 (46.5: 49.5: 52: 55: 58: 61: 64) cm. The cardigan is worked flat from the top down, so the sleeve length can be easily altered if you are tall or petit. The body length can be altered by a multiple of 7cm (you will need 1 extra button for every extra 7cm).

This pattern contains written instructions and charts and uses both American and British crochet terms.
