Notes
1. Cardigan is worked in 5 pieces: Back, left front, right front, and two sleeves.
2. Removable stitch markers are used to mark decrease locations. Place each marker on the indicated stitch, not
on the needle. As work progresses, pause every few rows to move the marker up to closer to the needle so that it is easy to identify the decrease stitches to be marked.
3. Back and fronts are worked from the lower edge upwards. Decreases are used to shape the miter(s) and begin
at lower corner(s) of each piece.
