PATTERN NOTES This cardigan is knit flat in pieces and seamed. The neckband is picked up and knit after seaming. When working in the striped sections, we recommend breaking your yarn at each color change. If you choose to do this, you may wish to weave in your ends as you go to save time.
Virtuoso is available as part of e-book Chroma, and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
