NOTES

  • This cardigan is worked back and forth from the bottom up in separate pieces and seamed. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
  • When the contrasting color is unused for only a few rows, carry it up the side of the work and bring it under the main color to begin working with it again.
