What advice would you give someone starting this project? I enjoyed the whole process of making the jacket but it took a lot longer than I thought.

I love it! I have also wanted to make one of these cardigans. Would you share a little more about how you drafted the pattern pieces?

I drafted the pattern from the t-shirt pattern in the AC 3rd book. I drafted straight lines from the armhole to the bottom edge of the jacket. The length is 18" and I rounded the front opening at the neck.
