Worked in one piece from the bottom up, this
cardigan has intarsia areas of stranded color
work. Two balls of the contrast color will be
attached to the garment: one for the right front

requires intarsia wrapping at the edge of the
pattern areas and stranded color work to bring
both colors across the pattern areas.
