This cardigan is worked in the round with raglan sleeves and an over sized hemline to give that ‘swing’ effect. Worked only in stockinette and garter stitches, its a very simple knit designed to show off a yarn that doesn’t need or want fancy stitches…like the Mountain Colors Half Crepe. I think it has enough color changes and texture on its own that it doesn’t need any help.

Instructions for grafting are not included in the pattern.
