Product Description

This fun cardigan looks like it has been pieced together, but it is worked from the top down in one piece. The set-in sleeves are picked up at the armholes and worked top down and in the round. The front bands and neck edges are picked up and worked at the end.

The shape is slightly A-line for a loose, casual fit and of-the-moment style. The slightly longer back adds interest and follows the color blocked, pieced-together look.
