Skills RequiredFair Isle Pick Up Stitches Working from a Chart
The cardigan starts with a provisional cast on for the upper body which is worked sideways. After the upper body and sleeves are finished, stitches for the lower body are picked up and the stranded knitting part is worked flat and in rows.
All testers should be experienced with stranded color work and should also have an eye for construction. Although this cardigan fits me perfectly, the circumference for sizes goes up by 10 cm per size and I wonder if this will work. So adjustments might be necessary and you should be able to spot them.
The sleeves have a Latvian braid towards the end.
