About the construction: Two separate saddle shoulder pieces are worked first and then joined for yoke by picking up and knitting sts from the sides of the shoulder pieces. New sts are casted on for back. Sleeve construction follows contiguous method developed by Susie Myers (SusieM) on Ravelry. When yoke is finished, sleeves are separated and left on hold. The body is shaped with decreases and increases. Sleeves are worked in rounds and cardigan is finished with neckband and buttonband in which buttons can be fastened by knitting.
