The body of this cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom up, with a curved lower edge shaped by short rows and shaping through the waist. It is divided at the armholes, then front and back are worked separately to the shoulders. The set-in sleeves are worked separately and sewn in place. The collar is worked from stitches picked up along the front and neck edges. The curve of the lower edge is extended with decreases, while alternating wedges of stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch shaped with short rows provide a rippling flash of contrasting color.
