    PATTERN NOTES

    This sweater is worked from the top down with raglan shaping. It is worked back and forth in rows to create a cardigan that opens at the front. The sleeves are knit in the round. Optional short rows can be worked at the back bottom hem to add some shaping. The pattern is written for double pointed needles, however an alternate method of working small circumferences can be used, such as Magic-Loop.
