Tallulah looks like a garter-stitch cardigan, but its construction is more like a wrap with armholes. This is a great project for practicing picking up the stitches along the back shoulders to knit each front; once that is done, everything is joined at the underarm and the body is knitted seamlessly from the armholes down. Because Tallulah does not require that you knit sleeves (the impression of sleeves is actually the dropped shoulder), it does not use the Cocoknits Sweater Worksheet. Tallulah can be worn open or pinned closed.
