Construction Notes
Yoke is provisionally cast-on to work a top down raglan cardigan with shaping to the back. I-cord bind-off neckband is worked before picking up stitches around the body to create the stunning waterfall fronts with the beautiful feature stitch. Model A has elbow-length sleeves with a moderate front, and Model B has long sleeves with a more dramatic draped front.
