This is the long version of the BIG LOVE cardigan. (As always I ended up with another version when I started my second Big Love for pattern writing :)

When I bought Lettlopi yarn (for the first time!) at Mylys Hamburg, Naima the owner said to me: “You will love it”. And yes, this love is getting great :)

GREAT LOVE is worked seamlessly from the top-down. Start working the collar separately. Then you pick up as well as CO sts for the back and shape the back neck with short rows. Continue to work the back for the length of the armhole. Pick up the stitches for the front and collar and work both fronts symmetrically for the length of the armhole. Join back and fronts to work the body in stitch pattern down to the pocket opening and further to the bottom ribbing. Pick up the sleeve sts to work the sleeves in rounds in stitch pattern. Work the pocket lining and sew them in place.
