This blanket style cardigan is worked all in one piece from the top down, with raglan shaping for the sleeves, and eyelet increases for the back. The front opening is finished with a neat slipped stitch edging. It can be worn open for a waterfall effect, or closed with a pin.
The finished sizes shown are based on 2x the width of the back. The fronts overlap when laid flat. It is intended to fit with approximately 0 to +5 cm (0 to +2 inches) of ease based on these sizes.
It would work well in any dk yarn that gives you the noted gauge and drapes nicely after blocking.
Please be sure to block your swatch, and use whatever needle size gives you a post blocking gauge of 22 sts. This may vary depending which yarn you use as well.
