This delightful cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom up to the underarm, working backwards and forwards. The sleeves are then knitted separately as far as the armhole shaping and then all pieces are joined together to knit the yoke. The reindeer motifs are worked using fair isle stranded knitting, carrying the spare yarn across the back of the work. Inset contrasting pockets are knitted first and then joined to the body of the knitting.

Actual chest sizes in inches are: 22.5, 22.5, 24.25, 25.25, 26.75, 27.75, 29.5, 29.5
