NOTES

  • The cabled peplum of this cardigan is worked sideways in pieces for the back and each front, then stitches are picked up on the wrong side for the moss-stitch peplum. Stitches are picked up along the opposite edge of the peplum for the back and each front, which are worked from the bottom up in pieces and seamed. The cabled cuff on the sleeve is worked sideways, then stitches are picked up along the cuff for the sleeve, which ends in pleats.
