Construction Notes: This open front, shaped cardigan is worked without seams. It begins with the "skirt" section, which is worked from the empire bind down to the lower edge with a pleat at the center back. Stitches are picked up at the cast on edge and worked up to the armholes, then split for back and fronts. Sleeves are worked from the shoulder down, with the caps shaped with short rows. The ribbed and lace front bands are worked last and joined to the front of the cardigan as they are knit. The lace patterns for the back pleat and the front bands are give in both chart form and row-by-row instructions.
