Description

This relaxed, tunic-length cardigan in five sizes (XS, S/M, M/L, XL, XXL) features a soft shape and a subtle fabric texture, with pleated borders along the center front edges, which rise to form a standing collar around the neck. Fit is softly oversized; this design is best worked in a softly spun yarn to encourage a luxurious drape throughout the sweater body. All pieces are worked flat, bottom up, and seamed afterward.

Modern Deco Sport, Finn Dandy Sport, Chebris Sport, Stone Soup DK, or any softly spun DK/light worsted yarn the knits to pattern gauge. 
   
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
