A short boxy cardigan with a border in an easy striped slip st pattern. Worked bottom up in one piece up to armholes, then divided and each piece is knitted separately. The shoulders are formed by German short row and then joined (3-needle cast-off). Sleeves worked flat bottom up and sewn on. The sleeves are seamed with 1 selvedge stitch, using matress stitch.

The entire work is knitted in DOUBLE yarns - one thread Kid Seta and one thread Cottonwool 3 Organic held together throughout.
A wonderful combination that gives a very nice garment to knit and wear.
