Knit in the round with steeks for armholes, front opening, and sleeves. Never steeked before? Grellow Cardigan includes a photo tutorial to walk you through the process of using a sewing machine to secure your steeks.

Pattern includes full schematics; fair-isle charts for every portion of the sweater, including waist shaping and other areas of increases/decreases; and detailed instructions that don’t leave you guessing.

Pattern includes two PDFs: one for the steek tutorial, and one for the pattern/charts

Note about body length: If you plan on making the body longer or shorter, add or subtract the extra length at the beginning of the body section.
