CONSTRUCTION GAUGE

Cardigan is knit from the lower body to the armholes flat, back and forth. Sleeves are knit to the armholes in the round and then joined to the body. Armholes and shoulders feature modified saddle shaping, which begins by decreasing body stitches, then sleeve stitches, and then body stitches again before shaping the saddle shoulder with short rows. The button bands and collar are knitted onto the garment as it is worked until reaching the saddle shoulders. When the saddle shoulders are complete and the back of the neck has been raised, the collar sts are continued and knit onto the neck until the center back where the two halves are then joined with Kitchener stitch.

22 sts & 23 rows = 4" [10 cm] in combination Charts A, B & C patts, blocked
18 sts & 25 rows = 4" [10 cm] in sleeve patt (combination Chart A and St st), blocked
19 sts & 21 rows = 4" [10 cm] in 2/2 rib, blocked
