What is the longest that you have ever worked on a project you finished? For me, I would have to say it is this project, the Evergreen Cardigan! I started this project a year ago. I picked it up and put it so many time I lost count!

I really love the stitch combo and yarn and it had to be perfect! Once I finally got close to finishing the cardigan and began to think about sizing…the design came to a halt…you see, this cardigan is worked in a very large multiple. If you have ever tried designing, you know the importance of knowing your multiple for sizing. When that multiple is large it can make sizing more difficult.

So what I decided to do was to give size ranges. For example, XS/S, which I am wearing in the photo. I am generally a S/M in women’s sizes, so the XS/S is fitted on me. There is a size chart for reference with the actual measurements so you can choose the best size for you!
