Notes: Callas is knit in pieces; the back panel is worked
from the bottom up, decreasing and then increasing at
each edge to create shape. Fronts are worked sideways,
with short rows to shape armhole edges and decreases
to shape neck edge. Fronts are joined together with a
3-needle cast off at the centre back, then seamed to the
back panel along the top and decrease edges to create
cardigan.
