Notes
This cardigan is worked flat from the bottom up as follows: The body is cast on and worked back and forth up to the armholes where the back/fronts are worked separately. The back is cast off to form the pleat and immediately picked up again. Short rows are used to shape shoulders which are then joined with a 3 needle bind off. Collar is continued and seamed at back neck. Sleeves are picked up from armholes, shaped with short rows and worked down in the round.
