This top-down, seamless,striped, zippered cardigan begins with a ribbed tab at the back neck, then is knit downwards from there in a Chevron Pattern with Raglan shaping. After splitting off sleeve stitches, the body continues in a gently A-line shape. The sleeves are knit down in the round, and a zipper closes it all smoothly.
Familiarity with raglan shaping, chart reading and top-down construction is helpful, but charts and diagrams illustrate the concepts.

Because it is top-down, you can customize sleeve length and sweater length easily, and try on as you go.

It is such fun to watch the Noro striping generate a unique striping pattern for each colorway. One can also use Noro Silk Garden Solo for a more controlled palette. The unique drape and gauge of Silk Garden are used the best advantage in this fun sweater.

The pattern is charted out. Stitches required:knit, purl, KYOK, Centered Double Decrease, Row-below increase,and Make 1, are described.
