Additional Notes

This cardigan is a quick and easy sew, but the sizing runs a little large.

I made this in a size large, I was in between a medium and a large. I would make a medium next time and make the arm bands smaller. I like the sleeves pushed up and to stay up so I need to make the sleeves smaller. The fabric shop where I work loved it. I used a serge. Would make a great class project. Good job will be promoting your web site.
