This tunic length cardigan is knit in pieces and sewn together. There are 3 size options: 38 1/2", 44", and 49 1/2". It is designed to be worn with 2-4" of positive ease. The mesh pattern is both charted and written out to allow for individual preferences. Small uses 11 skeins of Tahki Cotton Class Lite, Medium uses 12 skeins, and large uses 13 skeins. The back has subtle waist shaping. Because most of the sweater is stockinette stitch, length measurements for body and sleeve can be easily be modified to allow for individual taste. No shaping in done in the lace sections of this design. The mesh pattern is a little tricky, so I would suggest you take it slow and use markers to help you keep your place. The design works equally well with your most comfortable jeans or over your favorite dress.
Using larger needles, 26 st/31r = 4" (10 cm) in stockinette stitch.
