Marco Polo is a comfortable, seamless cardigan mostly worked flat, from the top down.
The cardigan features v-neck, cozy extra long sleeves, slightly gathered back neck and lovely curved bottom and cuffs.
The pattern uses the Contiguous method developed by Susie Myers and includes two different ways to work the sleeves: the regular seamless method is worked in the round and the “seamed” method is worked flat, then joined with 3-needles bind-off.
This cardigan is intended to be worn with positive ease for a casual look.
