I wanted a short-sleeve cardigan for summer time.
At the same time, I was interested in the construction of this pattern, which starts with a sleeve edge and works sideway upto the center of the back edge and sews R&L sides together in the center.
The pattern calls for DK yarn, but all the needles I used were the same ones as the pattern calls for, intending the cardi to be light and swingy.
Happy now!
