Note This cardigan is worked back and forth from the top down. First the back is worked down to the underarm. The fronts begin with neck extensions that will be sewn to the back neck, then front shoulder stitches are picked up from the back shoulders and worked down to the underarm. The back and fronts are then joined and worked in one piece to the lower edge. The sleeves are picked up around the armhole and sleeve caps are worked using short-rows.
