The body of this lovely cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom of the back, over the shoulders (working the sleeves as you go), to the bottom of the fronts. The bottom button is placed so that you have plenty of room in the hips.

At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
