PATTERN NOTES This cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down, beginning with the neckband. The body and sleeves are separated at the underarms. The body is knit flat. The sleeves are knit in the round from the top down. Stitches for the button bands are picked up along the front edges and worked flat. Buttons are attached to finish the sweater.
Deluxe Stripes is a self-striping yarn. To ensure your project looks as close to the sample as possible, when starting the sleeves, be sure to visually match the color to the point at which you are rejoining. This will require you to wind off some yarn, but we promise the results are worth the effort!
