Design: Isabell Kraemer
The cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down.
Knitting starts from a provisional CO. Shoulder parts are worked first, then sts are picked up for sleeve caps. From this point fronts, sleeves and back are worked simultaneously top down to sleeve separation, where sleeve sts are placed on hold to work the body in one piece to end. After finishing the body, sleeve sts are picked up again to work the sleeves in the round top down to the cuffs. Collar sts are picked up around the neck. After finishing the collar, button bands are picked up along the fronts.
Charts and written instructions for cable/lace panels are provided in the pattern.
