Cardigan Details — from the book:
“Filmed on location along the spectacular Oregon coast, Cardigan Details concentrates on knitting a circular Norwegian style dropped-shoulder, scooped neck cardigan. The body is knitted in the round from lower edge to shoulder, with a steek up the center front. The sleeves are knitted from the cuffs, and there is a gentle Norwegian color-pattern at the tops of the sleeves and body. The armholes and center-front are cut open, sleeves sewn in and the border knitted on. Techniques shown include: casting on and k1b, p1 rib, increasing, short rows and wrapping, knitting-back backward, steeks, color pattern knitting, machine stitching, cutting, attaching sleeves and all aspects of knitting the garter-stitch cardigan border directly onto the garment in one continuous piece (no sewing): knit-up ratio, mitered corners, neck shaping, one-row buttonholes, two-stitch I-Cord Cast Off and finishing the cut edge. Kit is available.”
