Already a versatile garment, this pretty and hardworking design can be worn over long sleeves in the winter for use all year round.
Cardigan is worked in rows throughout. The upper Back and part of the Sleeves are worked first. The Fronts and Sleeves are worked from the opposite side of the foundation ch to the end of the Sleeve section. Once the Sleeves have been seamed together the Body is worked in one piece over the rem sts.
