Cardelina is, really, a comfy sweater, with a good classic length, reasonable ease, long sleeves, armholes large enough to host another piece underneath, a nice turtleneck and a so lovely cable pattern, front and back. I just like it! And I hope you will like it too…
It is worked in round from bottom to top until the armholes. Then front and back are worked separately and rejoined at the shoulders by a three needle bind off. Stitches are picked up at the armholes and sleeves worked in round to the wrist.
