TREASURE CARDIGAN PATTERN
This pattern is worked in sections. You will begin by making two side panels (one at a time) worked back and forth from the bottom up. You will then make the back panel, which is worked back and forth from the top down. Then you will seam the back panel to the side panels. Then you will make two sleeves and attach them to the body upon completion. Next you will block the cardigan.
The cardigan is intended to be worn open in the front. You can use a shawl pin to close it or attach a button. You do not need to make a button hole, you can simply button it through the yarn overs.
