The Body of this cardigan is worked from the bottom up in one piece, then divided for Fronts and Back, which are worked separately to the shoulders. After the Front shoulders are bound off, the remaining stitches are worked as collar extensions until they are long enough to reach the center Back neck. The Sleeves are worked from the bottom up in the round, and then the caps are worked back and forth in rows. The Sleeves are sewn to the Fronts and Back and then the collar extensions are sewn along the top edge of the Front shoulder, top of Sleeve, and Back shoulder and neck, then sewn together at the center Back. The cable pattern is presented in chart form only.
