Ready for your next crochet project? Snuggle up with your favorite yarn and crochet this quick and cozy cardigan. The Airport Cardigan features drop sleeves, a long roomy bodice, and a heavy, squishy textured design paired with traditional ribbing.

I consider this an intermediate pattern. Crocheters with general knowledge of building knit garments should find this 13-page pattern to be a straightforward design that is easy to adjust and customize.

There are no stitch tutorials within the pattern for the following stitches:
- single crochet,
- half double crochet/crocheting in back loops of hdc,
- slip stitch,
- chaining, and
- yarning over.

Stitches and techniques that are covered with tutorials within the pattern are:
- glover stitch/glover cluster and
- joining ribbing to a garment as you create the ribbing.

Features include:
- clear and conversational pattern instructions, minimal jargon and abbreviations.
- full color, photo tutorials regarding complicated stitching and techniques.
- alteration points so you can adjust the pattern to fit your body perfectly.
- shop support while working through pattern, if needed!

This cardigan is intended to be loose and long. It's a heavy, stretchy cardigan. Women who are a petite medium or smaller will find this pattern (as it is written) likely too large for their frame. I do, however, offer in-pattern guidance on where and how to adjust the cardigan slightly for a perfect body fit.

This pattern is written to make two different sized cardigans:
- a one-size cardigan that fits most women sized M-XL.
- a one-size cardigan that fits most women sized 1X-3X.

Pattern and sizing is written in US terms and calls for approximately 2000-2200 yards of a silky, low twist medium weight yarn, (i.e. Caron Simply Soft, Bernat Satin, Red Heart Soft).
