CONSTRUCTION
This open cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down. Starting with the right front, German Short Rows are worked back and forth to shape the shoulder slope. After completing the short row shaping, the right front is worked in pattern to the final length of the arm opening. It is then placed on hold to work the left front to match. Stitches for the back are picked up from the cast-on edges of both the right and left front and worked in pattern to match the length of the fronts. Fronts and back are then joined at the underarm to work the body in one piece to the bottom ribbing. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the arm opening to work the sleeves top down in the round in plain Stockinette Stitch to the cuffs. No additional finishing is required.
