121 San Diego Top-Down Cardigan

Despite being a big city, San Diego has a relaxed atmosphere that matches this cardigan perfectly. The cardigan begins with the back collar, which is worked in two pieces from the center out. The back shoulder stitches are partially cast on and partially picked up from the collar, and the back is then worked down to the armholes.

The fronts are picked up from the back shoulders and worked down to the armholes, then joined with the back, and the body is worked in one piece down to the bottom edge; sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole edges and worked down to the cuffs, with short-row shaping for the sleeve caps.
