Casia Cropped Cardigan PDF english version
Casia Cropped Cardigan is a feminine and short cardigan with raglan, puff sleeves and a beautiful frontband. The jacket also has a wide ribbed hem which is supposed to be placed in the waistline. The cardigan does not need any final sewing despite the puff sleeves, as they are shaped with the help of in- and decreases. The cardigan is knit top down, so you can easily adjust the length at both the body and sleeves while knitting. The jacket is supposed to be worn with approx. 0-10 cm positive ease.

You will need 5 buttons and 10 stitch markers knitting this cardigan.
The cardigan is knit in Stockinette stitch knitting back and forth on needle size 4.5 mm/ 4 mm (80 cm). The ribbed hems are knit on circular needle size 3.5 mm/ 3 mm (80 cm). I recommend double pointed needles in the beginning of the project, when you knit the neckband (the first part of the frontbands).
