DAA is a cute and classic striped cardigan worked seamlessly from the top down. The yoke is shaped by using a modified version of the contiguous set-in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers. When the yoke shaping is complete, the sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the underarm stitches are cast on. Then the body is worked back and forth to the ribbing. Instructions for optional pockets are also provided. Button bands and neck finishing are worked next. Then the sleeve stitches are picked up to work them in rounds top down to the cuffs.

DAA is the little (light) sister/brother of the don’t ask cardigan
