The cardigan is knitted from top down. You will start with the back and sleeve stitches and work flat to increase sleeve raglan and shape fronts. After dividing the body and sleeves, you will shape the body and knit down to the hem rib. Once you have finished the body, you will pick up the sts along the fronts and the neckline to knit a ribbed band.
The sleeves are knitted at last, in round and end with ribs.
