Dustin is a cute, textured cardigan worked seamlessly from the top down. To add interest there are cables on the sleeves and the front of the cardigan which is reminiscent of cute Bavarian jackets. After sleeve stitches are placed on hold the slightly oversized body is worked first down to the ribbing. Additional cables are worked at both sides of the body. Stitches are then picked up for the button band and the buttonhole band. Neck finishing is worked next. Last the sleeve stitches are placed back on the needles to work the sleeves seamlessly in the round down to the cuffs.
