A pretty fitted cardigan with an open diamond panel on the front. It is knitted in 4 ply weight wool.

The body of the cardigan is worked as one piece, bottom-up to the armholes. It then splits to form the upper body. Short row shaping creates the shoulders which are joined with a three needle bind off. The sleeves are knitted flat, bottom-up and then seamed to the body. Button bands and neck edging are picked up and knitted afterwards.
