Cardigan is knit sideways, starting from the left side. The body is knit in three flat pieces, then after seaming the shoulders the sleeves are picked up from the side edges and knit downwards towards the wrist. Collar edging is picked up and knit last. Fronts overlap by 4 - 5.5 cm/ 1½ - 2¼ in and can be secured with a pin or left open. Circular needles are used to accommodate large number of stitches.

Row gauge is important in this project! A difference in row gauge may affect the amount of yarn needed.
