The Sleeves of this cardigan are worked in the round from the bottom up, then placed on hold while the Pocket Lining is worked and also placed on hold. Then the Body is worked in one piece from the bottom edge to underarms, joining the pocket as you go, and working a small slit between the Right Front and Back
for the I-Cord tie. Fronts and Back are then divided, the Sleeves are joined, and the Yoke is worked in one piece to the shoulders, with raglan shaping. The neck edge is finished with an I-cord bind-off.
