This open cardigan is knit from the bottom up in one piece until you reach the underarm edge. The fronts and back are then worked separately. The sleeves are worked separately and then set it. The collar is picked up last, you switch to larger needles half way through so the collar folds out nicely.

Yarn shops, Autumnal is also available for wholesale starting next week!

Thanks so much to Berroco for supplying yarn support, and to Carrie Hoge for the beautiful photographs of Jocelyn!
