Pattern notes
This steeked cardigan is knitted in the round, from the bottom up, all in one piece. The body is knitted first, followed by the sleeves, before joining together and working the colourwork yoke from a chart. After the garment is completed, steeks are cut, and front bands added. Where only one number is given this applies to all sizes
