North Wind is an A line cardigan with eye catching cables and an interesting construction. The body is knitted sideways in a rectangle. The sleeves are knitted separately, starting with a provisional cast on and a cable edge. Once sleeves are constructed, stitches are picked up from the edge of the rectangle and yoke and hood are worked in stockinette stitch. No seaming is required.
