About the designer

Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

This beautiful cardigan is worked in one piece to the armholes. The sleeves are worked back and forth, then sewn into the armholes. The picot-style edging adds just the right finishing touch. Wear the cardigan with a pin at the neck or without any closure at all, or work the edging to accommodate small buttons (optional).

The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 5 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.
