It's possible it was machine knit which is hard to duplicate. The only I know to get a reversible looking fabric is double knitting or something like ribbing.

I like the look and feel of fingering, but the thought of making a whole sweater with it is daunting! Mostly I guess I'd say I use DK or worsted. Just finished a fingering weight scarf though.

If it's a cardigan and you knit in the round you'll have to steek it to have it open at the front. If you are just using circulars to knit flat then you don't change anything.
