This is the adult version of the popular kid's pattern. A scoop neck adorned with sweet birds is the focal point of this flattering cardigan. Thoughtful details make this cardigan special, including garter stitch edging and cuffs, darted shaping, and a short yoke design which is modern and flattering, gentle darted waist shaping, and raglan shaping around the shoulders, worked towards the end of the yoke, that allows sleeves to curve naturally to the underarm and avoids the pouch effect common in traditional yoke styles.
This cardigan is worked from the top down in Sport to DK or light worsted weight yarn.

When substituting yarn, compare the tension gauge of the pattern and the yarn. Working a tension square to determine the suitability of the yarn as a substitute is recommended - to compare the tension for sizing but also to test whether it creates the fabric you are after.
To determine the quantity needed, compare the total meterage needed in the pattern to the meterage on the substitute.
