This super lovely cardigan is originally designed by ITO Yarn & Design, intended to be worked bottom up in pieces. In this wonderful (slightly different) collaboration I modified the design to be worked top-down, seamlessly, and wrote the pattern for it.

YUBARI is worked seamlessly from the top-down.
Start working the back and shape the shoulders with short rows. Continue to work the back until the length of the armhole. Pick up the stitches for the front and work both fronts symmetrical with front and body increases until the length of the armhole. Join back and fronts to work the body down with front decreases and body shaping to the bottom. Pick up the sleeves sts to work the sleeves in rounds.
