A very easy top-down cardigan with waterfall front and fun bell sleeves.
Waist shaping and back darts create a very flattering fit.

The length of the front may vary depending on your body type and the yarn you choose. Small and Medium size has about 17” overlap in the front. Large and Extra large size has about 18”overlap in the front.

You can wear it open or closed with a shawl pin.
Very easy mindless knitting and fun to wear with skirt, summer dress, jeans, yoga pants…..!

Yarn suggestion - Maggi’s linen is 3 stranded, beautiful cotton/linen yarn, but it is not easy yarn to knit. Easy to split and tension is a little bit challenge. I would recommend to substitute the yarn, such as Classic Elite “Cricket”, Berocco“Linsey”…. Their suggested gauge is 20sts/4”. So please take time to get the right gauge, 18sts/4”. Arcemy“Pagoda” (100% silk!) is also beautiful yarn to knit with this cardigan. It’s almost done. I will post the pictures when I finish.

Errata - XL sleeves number should be 76sts after picking up 16 sts from underarm. (not 78sts) Sorry!
