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
and one for the center back. This garment
requires intarsia wrapping at the edge of the
pattern areas and stranded color work to bring
both colors across the pattern areas.
