Pat­tern Notes

Cardi­gan is worked back and forth in rows. Cir­cu­lar nee­dle is used to ac­com­mo­date the large num­ber of stitches. Do not join.

Body is worked in 1 piece to the un­der­arms, then back and fronts are worked sep­a­rately to the shoul­ders.

If you pre­fer, you may use a cas­ton of your choice in place of tubu­lar cast-on method.

Work edge stitches in stock­inette stitch.

Work neck, arm­hole and sleeve cap de­creases as fol­lows: K1, ssk at be­gin­ning of right-side rows and k2­tog, k1 at end.

Work sleeve in­creases as fol­lows: K1, M1R at be­gin­ning of right-side rows and M1L, k1 at end.
