This cardigan is worked from the top. The construction is divided in the following parts:
It is worked with a negative ease (almost 5 to 7 cm). If you want to wear a sweater underneath you must choose a bigger size or one of the two sleeves variations included in the pattern.
If you want to change the measurements of the hips, you can decrease or increase the number of stitches between the cables of the sides. For example, increase on both sides of the cable or do not increase between cables at the last increasing row.
