This is a loose-fitting cardigan with a body that is worked back and forth; starting with the right-front panel, then back panel and finally the left-front panel, all worked in one piece. Sleeves are worked in the round, picking up stitches from the armholes. The overlapping front panels give the garment a drapey front, which can be fastened with a pin (or buttons as per the instructions given in the pattern).

The yarn used is Trianon by Lopo Xavier, a shop located in the beautiful city of Porto, Portugal, that carries its own yarns. It is a light fingering, pure wool yarn that comes in a large assortment of colors and is available online.

This is a loose-fitting garment with a back that needs to be close-fitting to avoid having your cardigan falling off your shoulders. To choose the best size for you, measure your cross shoulder and check measurements below:

Small: 37-39 cm (14.5 – 15.25 in)
