Jessie's Girl Cardi is the cardigan version of my pullover pattern Jessie's Girl and just like the original, it is knit seamlessly from the bottom-up and features a very loose stitch pattern in sport-weight yarn to create a drapey silhouette perfect for spring & summer. This is an easy knit, perfect for beginners but more advanced knitters will also enjoy it's relaxing nature. It is meant to be over-sized and is intended to be worn with lots of positive ease (it is shown being worn with 10" of positive ease). Below are my recommendations for which size to make based on your actual bust measurement: Sizes 33-36" / 84-91 cm: Small Sizes 37-40" / 94-102 cm: Medium Sizes 41-44" / 104-112 cm: Large Sizes 45-49" / 114-124 cm: X-large BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic pattern reading skills Cast-on Bind-off Knit GAUGE 18 sts & 22 rws = 4"/10 cm in Garter Stitch after blocking SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Back Width: 21 (22.75, 24.5, 26.75)"/53 (58, 62, 68) cm
