The Dublin cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down, starting with knitting the saddle shoulders. The back and then each side of the front are worked down from the shoulders and then joined and worked to the bottom. The sleeves are each worked from the top down, using short rows to create the sleeve cap. The button band, and finally the collar are picked up and knit to finish the sweater off.
It’s an elegant cardigan to throw on with just about any outfit, making it a versatile piece to add to your travel bag.
