The Hug cardigan is very massive garment which length is until the knees and has long loose sleeves. This pattern is fitted for begginers so it is worked flat without shoulder seams - it means that back and front are knitted in one big piece. Cardigan front band is worked separately from whole cardigan. It means that front band is knitted only after main body part is finished. Sleeves are worked after finishing main body part too. This cardigan has two side seams. Hug cardigan is a stylish piece for beginner knitters who want to knit oversize sweater which fits well with various style clothes both at home and outside.
