The Sunset cardigan is an oversize piece with long balloon sleeves, reaching just below the hips. It's designed to be simple to knit and comes without shoulder seams - it means the back and front are all knitted as one big piece. The cardigan front band is then worked after finishing the main body section, as are the sleeves. It also features two side seams for added style, making it a fashionable choice for beginner knitters who want a cardigan that will go well with different looks both at home and outside.
