Flattering raglan cardigan, with fitted shaping at front and back, ballet neckline and elbow length sleeves. The back features an eyelet panel which laces up with ribbon. The lace neckband is worked first, then stitches are picked up and the cardigan is knit from the top down in one piece. Button bands with facings and a picot hem are knit in. There are no seams, the only sewing involved is darning in the yarn ends and whipstitching up the hems and facings. The top down construction means the cardigan can be tried on while in progress and the fit can be adjusted if necessary.
