Description

I love this cardigan and it's slouchy, over-sized look. It can serve as a sweater or a jacket, and has a lovely drape in the back. It is very easy to make and has only two short seams.

This cardigan is basically ONE-SIZE-FITS-MOST, but I do provide a gauge and some simple guidelines for adjusting the size. Guidelines do not include altering stitch counts.

The cardigan’s body is worked as one continuous piece, and then the sleeves are crocheted onto it. The main stitches used are chain and double crochet.
