Notes A build as you go cardigan, construction starts with the upper back striped piece, the bottom is finished increasing to add a swing shape. Fronts are picked up and short rows are worked to add length before stitches from the upper back piece are worked into the front short rows. Sleeves, hem, and collar are all picked up and worked seamlessly.

Please note! The name of this pattern has been changed due to the insensitivity and appropriation of the original pattern name. I apologize for any hurt the name of this pattern caused.
