Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic knitting flat & in the round & seed stitch

Pattern Description:

This cardigan is worked seamless and flat from the neck down. When the underarm area is reached, the sleeve sts are put onto waste yarn to be worked later. Then the remaining portion of the body is completed. The sleeves are worked in the round. The 6 row neck band, front bands, lower body band and wrist bands are worked in Seed Stitch. The body and sleeves are worked in Stockinette Stitch. The front bands are added when the rest of the sweater is complete so that the stripes are not on the front bands.

There are alternative directions at the end of the pattern if you want to work the front bands as you go along.

The pattern has directions for placing buttonholes on the left front band for the bands knitted on afterwards and on the right front band for the bands worked as you go along. Simply reverse the directions to the opposite band if that is what you prefer.

Directions are included for doing the striping as pictured, but it also works well done with multi colored random stripes.
