so this is my first post, and i was wondering if anyone could help me attempt this cardigan.
i've got some sewing experience so i figure its just two sleeves sewn to a large rectangle, but if anyone has sewn one before and has any tips, (or patterns) i'd love to not have to sketch a pattern myself

thankss

I just made something sorta like this!
How funny!  Mine was a knock off of a Splendid cardigan...
I just used a knit jacket I already own as a pattern for the arms.  I wanted them to fit and not be too baggy.  I just lay the jacket on my fabric and cut the sleeves and sides of the back in one go.   Then I folded that piece in half to cut the 2 front pieces.  I just cut extra in the front for the drape.  You can make it whatever shape you want.  It looks like yours may have more of a shawl  neckline, so cut that when you cut out your back too. 
I hope this makes sense...  it was really easy!
