The body is worked from the bottom up in one piece to the underarms, where fronts and back are divided and completed separately. After seaming the shoulders, stitches are picked up around the armhole and the sleeves are worked downwards in the round. The sleeve caps are shaped with short rows using an innovative technique that perfectly resembles the fit and shaping of a traditional set in sleeve. Directions are included for both elbow length and long sleeves. The cardigan is completed with ribbed button and neck bands worked from picked up stitches.
