Two ribs are better than one in this artful cardigan with long sleeves and deeply scalloped front edges.

Mixed Media is knit from side to side in one piece, with short rows and decreases shaping sleeve caps. Sleeves and collar are picked up and knitted. The only seams are along shoulders and down inside of sleeves.

Needles: Long straight or circular needles for sweater body and circular or double-pointed needles sleeves.

Notions: Markers, tapestry needle, three ¾“ by 2” toggle buttons, crochet hook (around 3.5-4 mm) and one small flat button for optional inside closure, waste yarn.
