The Italian translation of this pattern is available exclusively as a kit from Fili & Colori.

Matilde is a sideways long sleeve cardigan with a unique construction. A combination of short rows and raglan shaping ensures that the cardigan fits without pucker. It is worked mostly in garter stitch with a face framing cable to keep the knitting interesting. This design looks best with semi-solid yarn but can handle variegated yarn. The pattern includes a 3/4 sleeve version for those living in warmer climate.

Written and charted directions are given for the stitch pattern. Measurements are given in both centimeters and inches.

All the important steps are illustrated by photos.

The ebook version is the same pattern split into seperate clues and is available for free if you have purchased this pattern.
