This is the cardigan of my dreams. So comfortable, loose fitting and easy to make. It features drop shoulders, beautiful garter stitch bands and wide modern sleeves.
If you ask me, this is the perfect Spring of Autumn cardigan. I’ve been waiting for the equinox to arrive to release it! ;)

SIZES
XS/S (M/L, XL/2XL, 3XL, 4XL)
Since this cardigan has a very relaxed robe fit, most sizes fit a wide range of body measurements. This cardigan has an open front and it is not meant to be worn closed.
I recommend you wear it with 10-16” of positive ease.

Shown in size M on a 36” bust (with 16” of positive ease).
