PAT­TERN NOTES

Cardi­gan is worked in 1 piece from the top down to un­der­arm and then di­vided for body and sleeves. This method of con­struc­tion al­lows for length­en­ing or short­en­ing of pieces. Chain-2 at be­gin­ning of row or round does not count as first dou­ble cro­chet. Join with slip stitch as in­di­cated un­less oth­er­wise stated.
