This is a pattern for a lovely basic cardigan. It can be knitted in 3 different gauges, making it possible to knit the cardigan even if you do not meet the recommended gauge. However, be aware that the yarn requirement may vary slightly depending on your gauge. Additionally, you can choose between a cardigan with waist shaping or one without. Because of the 3 different gauges and their finished measurements, it is important to knit a gauge swatch before casting on to ensure the best result.
