A bottom-up cardigan featuring front and sleeve cables, waist shaping, and a minimum of finishing. The body is knit in one piece to the armholes, and then the sleeves are knit in the round and joined to the body for the yoke. The only sewing required is grafting (Kitchener stitching) a few underarm stitches!
Pattern also includes tips on how to modify the neckline to be higher or lower to suit your taste.
