Pattern notes
This cardigan is worked from the top down, increasing to shape the sleeves and neckline. Stitches are then cast on for each front, before shaping the sleeves and upper body. Sleeve caps are divided and set aside, then the body is worked to the desired length. Sleeves are picked up and worked top-down, with garter stitch cuffs worked in contrasting shades. A contrasting garter stitch edging is picked up and worked, in one piece, around the fronts and neck of the jacket edges. Following a tutorial, or your own design, the two fronts of the jacket are embellished with embroidery in contrasting shades.
