A great project for advanced knitters, this cardigan features stunning cables interspersed with areas of seed stitch and reverse stockinette. The body is knit in one piece from the bottom up and is then divided at the underarms to knit fronts and back separately. The sleeves are knit from the cuff up, in the round, and then set in to the body. A wide and squishy ribbing is picked up along the front sides and collar to finish the striking cardigan. Impress even your most seasoned knitting friends when you cast on this work of art.
