This is a pattern for a top down cropped cardigan with a circular yoke 3/4 length sleeves, worked in the round and with a bit of short row shaping at the neck, a steek, and using the stranded colourwork technique.
There are also instructions for crochet stitches and edges which are optional, but shown on the sample.

See schematic for approximate finished measurements. There is no shaping, however if you would like a bit of waist shaping and/or increase hip circumference, you may go up and down needles sizes as noted or increase from under-bust to the next size up.
There are colour charts and also symbol charts included in the pattern.
