My design Curvo, is a pullover version of Obliquo. The patterns are similiar but with a few key differences. When you buy both patterns together, you will get one of them for half price for a total cost of $9 USD (a savings of $3). Just simply add them both to your cart, and the discount will be automatically applied at checkout.

Knit sideways, Obliquo is a drapey, open-front cardigan with dramatically shaped shirt-tail hems. No short-rows are used, as the curved hems and shoulder shaping are created using only increases and decreases, making it quite simple to knit.

Notes
Cardigan is knit sideways, starting from the left side. The body is knit in three flat pieces, then after seaming the shoulders the sleeves are picked up from the side edges and knit downwards towards the wrist. Collar edging is picked up and knit last. Fronts overlap by 4 - 5.5 cm/ 1½ - 2¼ in and can be secured with a pin or left open. Circular needles are used to accommodate large number of stitches.
Row gauge is important in this project! A difference in row gauge may affect the amount of yarn needed.
