Construction
The cardigan is worked topdown. You first work the right Neckband started at CB, after that you work the left Neckband by cast on stitches along the cast on edge of the right collar. For the main part you pick up stitches along the lower side of the Neckband and work first some short rows for shaping and then work the Yoke including all increases along the raglan lines. Fronts and Back are worked in stockinette stitch, sleeves and CF edge in garter stitch; at Back you work a rib cable motif. You separate Body and Sleeve and finish them separately; Body ends with twisted rib hem.
