Pattern Notes:
Sweater is worked top-down from neck. Raglan sleeves and front are increased from cast-on
edge, then are divided by placing the sleeve stitches on holders and working the remainder of
the body. The deep-V shape of the neck is accomplished with increases. Decreases on the last
two body rows create a rounded bottom edge. The sleeves are then worked in the round. The
patch pocket is worked separately, incorporating an intarsia design, and is sewn on after. To
finish, the I-cord edging is worked onto sleeve edges and the cast-on, selvage, and bind-off
edges of the cardigan.
