Pattern clear, instructions accurate, buy more yarn if lenghtening Review by Laura

Nearly finished with this cardigan for my fashion-conscious 20-year-old son. He loves design. I love that front, back, front border and collar with i-cord trim are all knit as one. The instructions are clear and accurate, with the exception of the i-cord, which are for a separate cord and not one knit as an edging. Also, even though there are four sizes, each one has the same length for the body and the sleeves. If the sleeves have to be lengthened or the torso or both, be sure to purchase extra yarn.
