Knitting kit for Novice cardigan Chunky by PetiteKnit, Alpaca 3 + Silk Mohair
The Novice Cardigan – Chunky Edition is worked from the top down. This means that you begin by working the ribbed neck edge, then you work the yoke, then the body and finally the sleeves. The cardigan is worked in stockinette stitch, while the edges are worked in rib. The Novice Cardigan – Chunky Edition has a round yoke, which is shaped by working 4 sets of increases evenly distributed along the yoke.
PetiteKnit has made videos that demonstrate the different steps in the pattern, and can be found on PetiteKnits website here (videos in danish only).
