Pat­tern Notes

Cardi­gan is worked in 1 piece to the un­der­arm and then di­vided for fronts and back. Sleeves are worked flat from the bot­tom up. Front bands and col­lar are worked last; short rows are used to shape the col­lar. Work all edge stitches in garter stitch. When shap­ing in Twisted Di­a­mond Cable pat­tern, if you can’t work a com­plete cable turn, work in stock­inette stitch in­stead.
