This is a great, easy pattern. Made one for myself and suddenly everybody wants one. I have found an easy way to make all different sizes from XX lg to child sizes. Even my step daughter loved it. I have used different types of yarn and hooks to make the sizes work. Measure from elbow to elbow across shoulders for width and from back of neck to desired length to determine size of rectangle for body of garment. Once rectangle is made continue with rest of pattern. Soooo easy. Works up fast too. Thanks for such a great pattern.

Relaxed Cardi sizing

I hope to try this yarn soon, probably with the other Glam Cardi, but wish you would offer Relaxed Cardi in larger sizes. Red Heart is usually very good about including sizes through 2X, and this is a really pretty sweater that would look good on women of all sizes -- very feminine and unstructured in a flattering way.

I just finished this Cardi as a gift for my mom and I LOVE it!! I used a lighter weight yarn, though. It is just gorgeous! It was my first sweater and I didn't run into any problems with it.
