The gently undulating garter stitch panels create wonderful movement in the fabric of this cardigan. Knit from the top down starting with the saddle shoulder, the body is then worked in one piece. Sleeves are worked from the top down using short rows to shape the sleeve caps, extending from the shoulder saddles.
