SUMMARY: St. Gallen is a child’s or adult’s hip-length cardigan with pockets, long, drop-shoulder sleeves and a shawl collar. The overall pattern is stocking stitch while the hemline, button bands and pocket edges are worked in Moss stitch. The button bands are worked from ‘held’ stitches and slip stitched into place. The shawl collar and cuffs are worked as separate pieces in an intricate Fair Isle pattern and attached to the sweater in the finishing steps.
