DESCRIPTION

The hip-length oversize cardigan with front bands in garter stitch is worked top down. The diagonal fit at the shoulders is shaped by increases along the shoulder lines. Left front, back piece and finally right front are worked separately to the armhole openings and thereafter placed on the same needle to finish the body.

The sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole openings and worked in round. The long sleeves and tight cuffs create the desired balloon effect. All cuffs are worked with slipped stitches.
