The cardigan is worked flat from top to bottom and is completely seamless. You will begin by CO sts for neck opening. After setting up raglan markers you will increase sts in every RS row, thus creating the yoke. Once you reach the armholes, you will divide the yoke for body and sleeves. Shortly after the split, you will create a tunnel for an I-cord string. From then on the body will be worked even until you reach bottom hem. All hems are worked in Garter stitch, while the body and sleeves are worked in a very simple Dotted stitch. The sleeves are worked in the round and finish with Garter hems as well. At the end you will make I-cord string to tie the cardigan.
