NOW FOR PLUS SIZES - No seams! No sewing! No sagging! Easy and beautiful baby fern lace pattern accents waist and then flares slightly at the hips to flatter your figure. Elegant neckline won’t slide off your shoulders or hang awkwardly around your throat. Cardigan can be worn open at the front or you can use your favorite method to add buttonholes (recommended if you are more busty than model). It’s easy to adjust the length of body and sleeves as you knit. Pattern also includes several options for hems. Made with an easy care cotton blend yarn that resists pilling and stretching and has a lovely sheen, this will be your favorite cardigan for every season.

Pattern was designed using a cotton blend yarn, but any worsted yarn will work if gauge is checked carefully.

ERRATA - Pattern needs to be corrected in the front and neck band instructions as follows (corrections in italics):
FRONT AND NECK BAND - NOTE – Cardigan shown has no buttonholes or closures, but you may add buttonholes along the front edge using your favorite method.
