Notes
This cardigan is worked flat from the bottom up as follows: The body is cast on and worked back and forth with shaping and faux “seams” up to the armholes where the back/fronts are worked separately. Short rows are used to shape shoulders which are then joined with a 3 needle bind off. Sleeves are picked up from armholes, shaped with short rows and worked down in the round, also with faux “seams”. Buttonbands and collar are picked up and worked last. Remember when working the lace pattern while decreasing or short-rowing to only work a yarn over together with its corresponding decrease.
