The cardigan is knit from the top down, back and forth in stockinette stitch. It has a round yoke and texture (small knots) on the yoke with written directions. The neckline is folded over, and then short rows are worked to shape a deeper neckline. Once the yoke is finished, the work is divided for sleeves, and these are finished separately, after the body has been knit. Finally, button bands are picked up and knit along the fronts. Two different needle sizes are used to work the neckline and sleeve edges. This is to create a nicer folded edge with a crisp stitch definition in the ribbing.
The cardigan is lightly oversized with baloon sleeves that are not too wide. A really comfortable that fits everything.
Difficulty Can be knitted by slightly practiced knitters. It is easy to knit and there are both written and video instructions for the techniques used in the pattern. The hardest part of the pattern is short rows and Italien bind off.
