The Girlfriendscardigan Anke is a fun and simple project, that you can knit while chatting with your besties and have fun. It has a nice finishing touch on the edges and faux seams at the sides and the sleeves.

The sweater is worked seamlessly from the top-down.
Start working the I-cord separately. From the I-cord edge pick up the stitches for the back and shape it with short rows. Continue to work the back in garter sts until the length of the armhole. From the opposite I-cord edge, pick up the stitches for the front and work both fronts alike until the length of the armhole. Join the fronts and back to work the body in garter sts and short row front shaping down to the bottom ribbing (or optional pockets). Pick up the sleeves sts to work the sleeves in rounds.
