Woodland is a sweet, oversized cardigan with the cutest little woodland colorwork at the hem. The cardigan is worked seamlessly top-down. It has long sleeves, a boxy shape with no waist shaping and the shoulders are shaped with short rows. The pattern comes with instructions for an optional bust dart. The body of the cardigan is worked in the round and cut open once finished. The pattern can be very easily modified into a pullover by omitting the steek.
