A colourful Fair Isle cardigan, with plain sleeves, knitted in Shetland 4 ply wool. Great for using up odds and ends.

The body of the cardigan is worked as one piece, bottom-up to the armholes. It then splits to form the upper body. Short row shaping creates the shoulders which are joined with a three needle bind off. The sleeves are knitted flat , bottom-up and then seamed to the body. Button bands and neck edging are picked up and knitted afterwards.
