Tully is a classic styled cardigan that every child will love.
Gorgeous bell sleeves and Little Arrowhead lace gives this cardie a very pretty feel.

Tully is constructed using a seamless set-in sleeve construction. It is knit from the top down beginning with a provisional cast on. The back is worked first with German short rows used to shape the shoulders. Then a clever but simple layout allows the fronts to be worked simultaneously before joining to knit for the rest of the body. Stitches are then picked up around the armholes to work the sleeves with the sleeve caps shaped with short rows.

This is the perfect pattern for those new to set-in sleeves. It gently guides you through the process, holding your hand and providing clear instructions and easy techniques to achieve the final stunning garment. For the more experienced knitter, the layout will provide a refreshing break from the familiar.
