Construction notes
This cardigan is worked from the bottom up in pieces, carrying yarn up the side for the stripe pattern. The pieces are then seamed together at shoulders and sides. Stitches are picked up for the armhole bands and joined to knit in the round. Finally the buttonband is picked up from the front edge to complete the pattern.
