Depends on how you want the cardigan/garment to fit.

A loose fitting garment has "positive ease" and would be 1-2inches larger.

A figure fitting garment would be equal.

A tight fitting garment has "negative ease" and would be 1-2inches smaller, requiring the fabric to stretch to fit around the wearer.
