Grandpa Cardi

Everyone is making these!
Patterns For Pirates Grandpa Cardigan in cotton/lycra. 
This is the banded tunic length version with 3/4 banded sleeves. 

I graded the pattern 1 size down in the hips.
Length adjustment: 1" shorter in the underarm, 2" shorter in the waist. 

Shortened and widened the button band.
Great Cardi option for larger sizes, sized for knits. 
Still undecided on buttons or snaps closure. 

Love the crisp button band and neck binding

I am definitely planning on making this again, since the pattern includes many versions and options:
