About the pattern:
Botanica is a loose fitting cardigan, designed top-down, with on-trend balloon sleeves and is fully size inclusive. The cardigan can be made to any length, and the sleeves can be changed to short, three-quarter or long sleeves. (changes to the length of the cardigan, as well as the sleeves, will affect yarn quantities.) Full instructions are given to achieve a great fit for any size.
The base instructions are for a completed chest measurement of 104cm. This is big enough for size extra small up to small. If you’re a size medium and you want the cardigan t0 be more fitted, then the small kit will be enough.
