The cardigan is worked flat in three pieces – the sleeves are cast-on and worked with the body. The body of the cardigan features A-line shaping and an open, sloping edge along the front. After the pieces are seamed, the garment is finished with an edging of stockinette and K1, P1 Rib.
During all shaping, take care to read the instructions thoroughly, as decreases occur at different rates. This pattern is written and charted, and contains a schematic.
