Casia Cardigan PDF english version
Casia Cardigan is a short and feminin cardigan with a wide neckline and 3/4 length puff sleeves. The cardigan does not need any final sewing despite the puff sleeves, as they are shaped with the help of in- and decreases. The cardigan is knit top down, so you can easily adjust the length at both the body and sleeves while knitting. By knitting short rows, the neckline is slightly higher at the back. The cardigan is supposed to be worn with approx. 5 -10 cm positive ease. If your bust measurement is 84 cm, you should choose a size XS.
