Cardigan No. 5 is a classic cardigan, knit in brioche stitch.

Size guide

Cardigan No. 5 has a short and relatively tight fit.

The cardigan is worn with approx. 15-20 cm positive ease (measured at your bust).

Please keep in mind that brioche stitch stretches when being worn – it will return to the original size after wash.

If you prefer an oversize fit, go up one size according to your actual size.
