Carabe is a seamless striped cardigan knit from the top down.
The design uses contiguous method of shaping set-in sleeves developed by Susie M.
It is is worked in Stockinette stitch mostly with several Carabe Stripes located on the yoke and next to bottom hem and cuffs. After completing the whole body you will make ribbed front bands and a shawl collar. The shawl collar will be shaped using short rows. At the end the whole band is finished with I-cord bind-off.
