DESCRIPTION

Important Note: The Patternhack for the Jumper is only available in size S and in German language. Sorry!

This cardigan with 3⁄4 length sleeves is worked seamlessly top down in one piece. Stitches for front bands as well as for shoulders and sleeves are picked up with the provisional cast on method.
You start by working the left neckband, thereafter the stitches for the provisional cast on for shoulders and sleeves to the armhole opening. The right side is worked the same way. You then undo the provisional cast ons and pick up stitches for the back from the left front, left front band, right front band and right front.
Shoulders and sleeves are shaped with short rows, the neckline with increases and the curves under the armhole openings with decreases. The lower body part is worked in a short “ribbed hem” in stockinette brioche, so that the edge doesn’t curl.
By working this cardigan top down and due to the cardigan’s special construction, it can easily be adjusted in size while knitting. All further information can be found in the instruction.
