Very Kochi Cardigan is a round shaped raglan cardigan worked from the top down with cute pockets. This seamless cardigan begins with a small garter collar and 3-D cable front bands.
The cabled raglan lines continue uninterrupted and become a pocket opening. The fun of knitting this cardigan is the work of pocket bags made by connecting them to the main body as a one-piece construction. It is unique, but I think that the joy when the pockets are completed successfully is great.

Very Kochi Cardigan is a sister pattern of Kochi Cardigan.
The differences are 1. A little more ease around bust and hips.
2. The shapes of neck and hem. 3. No more cable after joining two cables for body after pocket and sleeves. 4. Garter neck band.

Very Kochi cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down with raglan shaping. The yoke is shaped with short rows and raglan increases to the underarms. The body and sleeves are divided and worked separately. At the start of the pocket, the fronts and the back are divided and the fronts are worked first. While working the back, the pocket bags are made and attached to the fronts at the edges of the back. The sleeves are worked circularly to the cuff. The buttonholes and button bands are worked as part of the body of the cardigan.
