Inspired by a menswear cardigan with a flat yoke and textured body, seeds and chains contrasts a simple seed stitch and a fancy openwork lace ribbing for a sophisticated yet puckish look. And, the Italian chain has just enough challenge to make knitting it interesting. Body is worked all-in-one piece from the bottom-up. Sleeves are worked separately from the bottom-up. After shoulders are bound off, front bands are continued, then sewn to back neck. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit and purl inc and dec yo, k2tog, ssk GAUGE 22 sts and 28 rows = 4 inches/ 10cm in Italian Chain. Take time to check gauge.
