Striped or solid, cardigan or pullover… Each sweater is worked in the round from the lower edge to the armholes (with flattering shaping at the waist), the sleeves are added, then the yoke is shaped with carefully placed decreases. For the cardigan version, the front is cut open…before the neckband is worked. The only seams to finish are at the underarms.
