Notes: This reversible, interchangeable raglan cardigan is knit from the neck downwards in 2-3 separate pieces of your choosing. It is knit in the standard way a top down raglan sweater is constructed except that it is divided in half. Stitches for the top of the shoulder are cast on first, and yoke and necklines are shaped. When yoke depth is reached, body and sleeves are divided and the body is worked to the hem. Sleeves are then completed. Button bands are picked up on both of the sides of cardigan, and are thus joined as one piece by buttoning closed. There is no distinct back and front. You have the option to knit all three pieces (creating an interchangeable sweater), knit two different pieces, or to knit two of the same piece. Note that yarn requirements given are per piece - if you choose to work two of the same piece, yarn amounts for that piece will need to be doubled.
