This design is knitted top-down seamlessly in stockinette stitch.
The body is knitted flat, while the sleeves are knitted in the round. You will begin by knitting the back until the underarms. While increasing stitches, you create a decorative effect at the back. Then, separately knit each shoulder at the front, shaping the v-neckline at the same time. The front and the back will then be joined together and the rest of the body will be knitted. Next, you will pick up stitches along the armholes for working the sleeves.The edge band is knitted from picked-up stitches along the front and back of the cardigan.
Available sizes: XS (S ) M (L ) XL
The sizes XS (S ) M (L ) XL are designed to fit approx. bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 [30.5-33.5 (33.5-35.5) 35.5-37.5 (37.5-39.5) 39.5-43.5 in].
Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 93 cm [36.5 inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size M.
