Comfy, loose-fitting V-neck cardigan with no-sew sleeves that can be dressed up for teamwork in the office or worn over jeans to the stadium. Body is worked flat in one piece to the armholes, then the upper back and upper fronts are worked separately. After shoulders are joined, stitched are picked up and the sleeves are worked in the round to the wrist. Optional inset pockets (that are easier than you might think!), optional buttons. Includes easy worksheet for figuring button holes!

This pattern is actually quite simple in design so that more experienced knitters can work in waist shaping, bust shaping and shoulder shaping without having to do major calculus! Complete specifications are given. The sample pattern (work with approximately 52” finished chest) has short-row bust shaping and was adjusted for shorter arms.
