Sport (12 wpi) ?
22.5 stitches and 36 rows = 4 inches
in stockinette
US 8 - 5.0 mm
US 6 - 4.0 mm
1903 - 3114 yards (1740 - 2847 m)

This cushy cardigan features deep garter rib edgings on the body and sleeves, waist shaping, and a nice long sailor collar. The sleeves are worked in the round, while the body is worked back and forth in one piece to the underarms, where it’s joined with the sleeves to work the seamless raglan yoke. The garter stitch button bands are picked up and knit after the body is complete. The hip measurement is slightly larger than the bust for a flattering, easy to wear shape.

Shown in size 37 3/4” to fit 36-38” bust. The finished fabric is very stretchy, so for a fitted look choose a size that is the same or 1-2” smaller than your bust measurement.
