• When measuring for length from cast on edge, use the 1x1 ribbing edge, as the Leaves pattern sits lower.
• Cardigan is worked in one piece from the border to the armholes, then fronts/back are worked separately to the shoulders. Sleeves are picked up and shaped using short rows. Finally, the front borders and collar are picked up and worked at the same time.
