  1. Cardigan is worked in 5 pieces: Back, left front, right front, and two sleeves.
  2. Each piece is worked, back and forth in rows, beginning with a 2x2 Rib lower band. After the lower band is complete, the body of each piece is worked in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side). Finished pieces are seamed and front and neck edgings are worked in one piece directly onto the cardigan.
  3. Back, fronts, and sleeves can be worked with straight needles or circular needle. If you choose to use circular needle, work back and forth in rows on circular needle as if working with straight needles.
  4. Circular needle is used to work front and neck edging. Circular needle is used to accommodate large number of stitches, work back and forth in rows as if working with straight needles.
