Marit is a fairisle cardigan worked seamlessly in the round from the bottom up until the neckband shaping, which is worked flat. Then the centre steek is cut and steeks are cut for the armholes from the existing stitches for the body. There are three colours in the pattern design, but only two colours are knitted at once.
