Warm Wishes is a seamless, comfortable, loose-fitting cardigan with pockets.
We start the work with a provisional cast on at the underarms and then work bottom up to the shoulders, the deep yoke is shaped with unusual raglan-like decreases.
Body and sleeves are worked top down from the provisional cast on.
The pocket linings are worked horizontally during finishing, and they are deeper than the pocket openings.
