Volans Cardigan

$7.50

This a cropped cardigan, with bobbles, twisted stitches, and eyelet lace at the hem and cuff. The cardigan body is knit flat, from the bottom up, until the underarm. The cardigan front bands are worked simultaneously with the cardigan body. Once the body is worked to the underarm, the cardigan is set aside to work sleeves separately, in the round. Sleeves are then joined to the body, and yoke is decreased with raglan shaping.
