Making Waves Cardigan PDF
Making Waves is a fitted cardigan with a scooped neckline, raglan 3/4 sleeves, and ruched edges. The body is shaped to the waist and hips with princess seams, and the fronts of the upper bodice are held together with a series of sewn-on hooks and eyes. The cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top (neck) down and is intended to be worn with 0-2.5" of negative ease at the bust. Positive ease at the bust is not recommended since the hooks and eyes require some tension to hold them in place across the bust.
