This is an experiment constructing a cardigan in an unusual way. The body is knitted bottom up with a large leaf panel. Then the sleeves are worked (also bottom up with 1 large leaf at the bottom). After that the leaf panel is worked (while the leaves are getting smaller) around the neck. Stitches are picked up at the front and neck to work the buttonbands with short rows to follow the curve of the leaves.

Written instructions next to the charts:
On row 15, both right and left leaves, there is a YO missing in the written instructions, the charts are correct.
