Construction
This cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom up. Fronts and back are then divided at the underarm and worked separately. After the shoulders have been joined stitches are then picked up around the armscythe and short rows are worked to shape the sleeve cap. Buttonbands are worked at the same time as body.
