The Cardigan Is Still on the List

Way back in February of this year, I put on my "to make" list a cardigan/cover up of gauzy material, inspired by the memory of a cover up I owned decades ago. Though it's now August and the fabric is no longer available as a regular item in my shop, I'm still interested in making a version of the cover up.
Plain double knit cotton, now available only by special order 

The cardigan is a very basic pattern.  Instructions for a similar, but simpler, version can be found here! Now my old cardigan was slightly more complex with its short rectangles for sleeves. I only wore mine one way, as... well,... a cardigan, not with all the variations seen in the previous link. Perhaps the sleeves made my cardigan less versatile. I don't know. I never tried experimenting with it.

Anyway, I'm still determined to make this. Maybe in a more substantial fabric, so it can gracefully move into autumn? What do you think? A gauzy cover up or a wool wrap-like cardigan?
