The No Frills Cardigan is a long cardigan that is worked from the top down with raglan increases. The cardigan is worked in stockinette stitch, while the neck edge is worked in rib which is continued down along the front edges. At the end, the afterthought pockets are worked from stitches that are picked up along the fronts of the cardigan.

Size guide

The No Frills Cardigan is designed to have approx. 20 cm [8 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 20 cm [8 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm [30½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches]. 

The measurements for the finished garment are given on the first page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S cardigan has a bust circumference of 110 cm [43¼ inches] which in the given example would give you 18 cm [7¾ inches] of positive ease.
