Please find my birthday present here.
the Morlaix Cardi is worked in rows seamlessly from top down. neckband and front bands are worked in k1,p1 ribbing. neck shaping will be done with short rows, using the W&T method. for the shoulders, increases will be made in every row along one seam stitch (contiguous method by Susie Myers). sleeve increases will be done in every second row.
once sleeves are divided from body, the body and sleeve ribbing (k3,p2) will start after some rows in stockinette stitch. pocket backs are worked together with the fronts on separate needles. you need one additional thread for each pocket back. the yarns have to be twisted and changed at each change of needle. for a soft A-shape slanted increases will be done at the same time as the pockets are made.
