Sizing follows the Craft Yarn Council’s standards for Women’s sizes.

- This cardigan is designed to be over-sized and loose-fitting. Sizes are combined into size groups.
- Instructions and yarn requirements for Size 1 are given outside the parentheses, with Size 2 and Size 3 given inside the parentheses, like this: Size 1 (Size 2, Size 3).
- When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To follow pattern more easily, circle or highlight all numbers that apply to your size before beginning.
