“A squishy cardigan with a special surprise on the back.”
Actual chest circumference of garment:
16.5/19/20/21.8/22.5 (25/26/28/29) inches, or
42/48/50/55/57 (63/65/70/72) cm
4.5 sts and 8-9 rows per inch in garter stitch
Note: A firmer fabric is preferred for this cardigan, to make the stretchy garter stitch hold together nicely. I recommend using a thicker aran weight yarn with smaller needles when working out your gauge. If you prefer a softer fabric with more drape, use worsted weight yarn.
