Notions: 10 stitch markers, scrap yarn, darning needle, sharp scissors, snaps/poppers (optional)

Notes: A steeked cardigan worked from the top down in polka dot ‘Confetti’ colourwork pattern. A heavy laceweight yarn has been chosen as the contrast to make the floats invisible on the RS of work. Choose a laceweight yarn with yardage of 400 - 650 m / 437 - 711 yds, so the difference between the two yarn thicknesses isn’t too big. Yarn A should be a ‘woolly’ yarn so the steek holds its shape. We recommend knitting a gauge swatch in the round and practising the steek method before cutting your finished garment.
