This pattern has been technically edited and tested.

The cardigan is knitted flat using a top-down approach, beginning with a 1x1 rib neckband. Next, the back neckline is raised by using German short rows. The button bands and the fronts are worked simultaneously and raglan increases are integrated up to the underarm. The sleeve stitches are set aside while the body is worked to the hem. Sleeves are worked top-down in the round.

SIZE GUIDE

To pick the correct size, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust. The recommended ease is 10 to 20 cm / 4 to 7¾”.

Please note that the finished measurements can only be achieved if the cardigan is knitted in the correct gauge.
