Worked in Brioche Rib pattern. Brioche Rib is a two-row repeat. Only after two rows are completed will you see a new stitch on one side.

Back, Sleeves, Left and Right Fronts are worked separately, then joined and worked in one piece for Yoke.

Finishing: Sew side and Sleeve seams, reversing seam about 2 in. (5 cm) above wrist edge of Sleeve so that cuffs can be folded back. Seam ends of neckband together then sew edge of neckband to back neck of Cardigan. Sew on buttons opposite buttonholes. Weave in ends.

Ed. note: Pattern can be adapted for boys or girls (reverse buttons/buttonholes).

Construction schematics are provided.
