“Kaga”, flower bud in Japanese, is a boxy cardigan that dresses up your casual outfit.
It is worked from the top down seamlessly. The fronts and back are first worked back and forth separately. After short-row shoulder shaping, they are worked in Kaga pattern to the underarm, then joined. The lower body is knitted in one piece to the hem.
Sleeves sts are picked up around the arm openings and worked down in the round in 1x1 rib.
The front and neck edging are finished neatly with I-cord.
