The cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top-down in changing from stockinette stitch, to 1x1 rib stitch, to half fisherman’s stitch throughout. Due to the different gauges of the patterns it automatically results that the cardigan is slightly longer in the front and back middle.
Start working the back and shape the back neck with short rows. Continue to work the back until the length of the armhole. Pick up the stitches for the front and work both fronts alike until the length of the armhole. Join back and fronts to work the body with 2 sets of short row down to the bottom band in contrast colour. Pick up the sleeves sts to work the sleeves in rounds. At the cuffs you can choose between a trumpet sleeve and a normal arm cuff.
