Well you could try just doing the washing machine @ 60 degrees celcius.. Some jeans of a friend shrank 2/3 cm in length

washing at 60 degrees or more should do it but be warned its not an exact science!

I wouldn't advise a hot wash for a cardigan. You might ruin the shape of the garment. Read the care instructions first if you chose this option.
