Very easy jersey cardigan (and assorted tunic)

I had seen some variations of this very easy cardiagan in several places on the web (etsy stores, tutorials etc). The pattern is a simple rectangle piece folded in half and sewn in a way that two holes for the hands are created. I added my personal touch by sewing two tubes at these holes to create sleeves. the construction of the cardigan is shown a bit clearly at the last pictures (at the last photo the cardi is folded in half).
If anybody is interested just ask me for more details!
The assoterd tunic is model 113 from burda magazine 6/2009, in which I added a band at the bottom to create a bubble effect.

I hope you like it!!

    Very nice, you did a great job and I adore the color and fabric! Such a rich berry shade. I made something similar in a very short version awhile back since that was the only diy pattern I found. I would love to make a longer version as you have with sleeves so any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
