The Balloon Cardigan is a short cardigan with balloon sleeves accentuated by a tight rib at the wrist. It is worked top down and closed in the front with 4 buttons. 

The button bands are worked in one piece together with the rest of the cardigan - this means that the Balloon Cardigan requires little to no finishing at all. 

The Balloon Cardigan is a cropped piece that works well with high waist jeans or skirts.
