Starlings are known as a very intelligent bird species--they are capable of mimicking many sounds from their environment and even have very distinguished taste buds! You will feel as smart as a starling in this slouchy boyfriend-fit cardigan with roomy pockets and a lovely chunky texture.

Pattern difficulty: Intermediate (not advised for beginners)

FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE. This pattern is written based on measurements and can be easily adjusted to your custom measurements. The pattern includes suggested measurements to create adult sizes Small (US women’s sizes 4-6) Medium (sizes 8-10) and Large (sizes 12-14) just as a guideline, but the pattern includes sizing tips to customize your sweater to fit ANY size, width, or length. So no worries if you are not between an adult size S-L, you can totally make this cardigan too! I write my patterns this way to give you the creative freedom to make your sweater to fit your unique size and style preferences.

(for adult size small) Approx. 1,400-1,750 yards of size 4 yarn (I used about 4 skeins of Caron Simply Soft) the quantity of yarn will vary depending upon the size of your sweater and your gauge.
