The long points hanging down in the front of this light and airy throw-on-over-everything cardigan breaks up the horizontal bottom edge, making it universally flattering. Because its small collar band at the back neck is incorporated into the knitting at the beginning, you don’t need to go back and pick up stitches after the body of the sweater is finished. You will simply seam the already-knitted collar to the back neck. This is the magic of the Cocoknits Method.
