Worked seamlessly from the top down, Tenaya takes classic bottom-up set-in-sleeve styling and turns it on its head.

The cardigan begins with two separate shoulder pieces that are shaped with short rows, joined to form the upper back, then worked to the underarms. The fronts are picked up from the back’s cast-on edges and worked to the underarms. Fronts and back are then joined and worked in one piece to the hem. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes, shaped with short rows, and then worked in the round to the cuff.
