A flattering vertically striped, seamless cardigan, knit sideways in one piece. Speedy and great fun
to knit. It utilizes short-rows, tubular cast-on onto two needles, grafting using waste yarn and a neck insertion. The design may be customized as you work: it includes suggestions for bust shaping as well as short rows to add fullness at the hips and tummy. Minimal finishing required. Once the first short
rows are established, the sequence is designed to be logical and easy to remember. The cardigan will look rather strange once you have passed the center back position, as the neck opening is made last of all.
This pattern is much easier and more fun to knit than to write!
This pattern is also available as a kit from my website--please see the accompanying link!
