The cardigan is worked almost completely seamlessly to minimize finishing. You begin by casting on stitches for collar, along which you later pick up stitches for the body of the cardigan. Once the collar is joined to the body, the whole cardigan is worked back and forth until bottom hem. The sleeves are worked last. They are worked in the round and finished with vertical Garter cuffs. Choose from two lengths, depending on your preference: full length version or hip length version. There is also an optional belt worked in Garter stitch with I-cord finishing.
