Notes This cardigan is worked back and forth in one piece from the lower edge to the underarm, then the back and fronts are worked separately to the shoulders. The buttonbands are worked at the same time as the body. After completing the fronts, the neckband stitches are placed on holders. The shoulders are joined, then the sleeves are picked up and worked in the round from the top down. Neckbands are shaped and sewn to the back neck. Pockets are picked up from the top of the edging.
