Description

I tried out the Karen cardigan pattern (actually back in December!) with this lightweight purple jersey. After seeing KristenI’s version, I followed her advice and went a size down from what I would usually make, and also lengthened the sleeves by a couple inches because that’s usually an issue for me. I like how the fit turned out, and overall this is a very comfortable and versatile cardigan.
