One of Kristen TenDyke’s signature seamless sweaters, Waipi’o is a fun and easy-to-knit cardigan with simple stitch patterns. It’s perfect for anyone new to sweater knitting.

This sweater is knit from the top downβ€”the yoke is worked, then the sleeve stitches are placed on holders while the body is worked. The sleeve stitches are returned to double pointed needles then worked from the underarm to the cuff in the round.

No seaming is required to make this piece.
