From the description: Echoing the sweet lilt of a Scottish folk song, post stitches dance up and down a classic cardigan silhouette.

Pattern Information: Despite appearances to the contrary, the cardigan pieces feature only two patterns and little more than basic stitches plus the front post treble crochet. Since the pieces are worked from side to side, the stitch patterns are worked one at a time. To make a front, for example, one edge of a row is at the bottom band and the opposite edge is at the shoulder.

Additional materials:

  • 6 buttons, 5/8” / 1.5cm diameter
