Left Front Panel

Hold the cardigan so the right front panel is on your right, facing you. Skip 3(4, 3, 4, 5) sts starting after the last st you worked on the first row of the right front panel, then join yarn to the next st on the back panel.

Rows 3-30: repeat rows 1-2


If you decreased/increased the length of the back panel, be sure to do the same for the front panels. Always exclude the setup row in counting.


FO, and proceed to Seaming Instructions


Seaming

Feel free to substitute your preferred seaming method for this technique.


Fold the cardigan so that the front panels are on top of the back panel.


Using the mattress stitch, seam up one side of the cardigan until 6(7, 8, 9, 10) inches remain. Secure the tail, then repeat these instructions for the opposite side of the cardigan.

Border

The border addition is completely optional, but provides a clean finish.


Join the yarn to any st along the bottom of the back panel.


Round 1: place 1 sc st in ea st along the bottom of the front/back panels, and sc evenly up and around the front collar. I recommend placing one st per sc row, and two sts per dc row. Place 3 sc sts in ea corner. slst to the first sc st.


FO, weave in any ends, and proceed to Sleeve Instructions


Sleeves

Join the yarn to any st along either armhole.


Round 1: ch 2, and dc evenly around the armhole. End with a stitch count divisible by three.


Round 2: ch 1 and turn. sc in ea st around. slst to the first st.


Round 3: ch 2 and turn. dc in ea st around. slst to the first st.


Repeat Rounds 2-3 until the sleeve is your desired length.


Decrease Round: ch 1 and turn. *sc in the next st, sc2tog* around. slst to the first st.


Next Round: ch 1, sc in ea st around. slst to the first st.


Final Round (optional): slst loosely in ea st around.


Repeat these instructions for Sleeve 2, then proceed to Finishing Instructions


Finishing

Weave in any ends you may have remaining. If you decide to block your cardigan, I recommend pinning it out on blocking mats gently, spritz with water, and either steam block or let air dry. The sample pictured is not blocked.
