This seamless cardigan is worked in Fisherman’s Rib stitch from the bottom up. You will first work the bottom section of the cardigan flat, before splitting at the underarm point to work the front left panel, then the back panel, followed by the front right panel. You will join the shoulder seams to create the armholes using the Three Needle Bind Off method. The sleeves are worked in the round by picking up stitches along the armhole edges. You will finish by working the double-knitted button band flat by picking up stitches along the inside edges. Instructions on how to adjust the body and sleeve length of your cardigan are included.
