I have been looking to work on a light weight cardigan......using the top down method.....have worked on many for infants.......have only found one for Lion Brand Wool Ease......

Any suggestions for using a lighter yarn instead of wool? Is it possible to use the same pattern? I would imagine it will change the dimensions, etc.!

Thanks for all the help! Look forward to seeing some patterns!:happydance:

As long as you use the same weight/gauge yarn you should be able to do any of these in cotton I think.

If you don't mind spending a few dollars these are great simple patterns.
