Lola Cardigan is designed to fit with 8-13cm (3-5in) of positive ease at the bust. This cardigan is worked seamlessly from top down. First, some short rows are worked back and forth to raise the back neck. Then the yoke is worked in rows to separation for body and sleeves. The lower body is worked in rows to bottom. Sleeves are worked top down to the cuffs. The length of the body and sleeves are easily adjustable.

The pattern is available in English language with US crochet terms, and in Dutch. It includes written row-by-row instructions, progress pictures for the textured yoke and video tutorials for short rows, ribbing and bands.
