A 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. Minimal finishing required. Once the first short rows are established, the sequence is designed to be logical and easy to remember. See the Venus Rising Cardigan for the adult version of this cozy sweater!
