This cardigan is worked from side-to-side in one piece. The opening for each sleeve is worked with waste yarn, then “unzipped” later. The unzipped stitches for the sleeves are then picked up and the sleeves are worked seamlessly using short rows to shape the sleeve caps. The cardigan is designed to be loose-fitting and flowy with simple details and clever one-piece seamless construction.
