This cardigan is knit back and forth from the bottom, up. The sleeves are provisionally cast on in the round and worked in reverse so that the striping throughout the sweater can be easily maintained and continuous throughout.

While there is not a lot interesting about a stockinette men’s sweater, the odd number striping incorporated into the design helps liven-up knitting; the striping occurs in rows of odd numbers, and it is sometimes necessary, during color changes, to knit or purl two rows consecutively. Likewise, the raglan decreases occur on both WS and RS rows during the course of shaping.
