PATTERN NOTES
This cardigan is worked from the bottom-up in one piece. The body is worked flat, and the fronts and back are separated at the armholes and worked separately. The shoulders are joined using the three-needle method. Then, sleeve stitches are picked up and worked seamlessly in the round from the top-down. The button bands and neck edging are picked up and worked flat. Finally, a 2-stitch I-cord edging in a contrast color puts the finishing touches on this adorable, striped sweater.
