TDRC Raglan Cardigans from the Top Down (any gauge)

You really enjoy knitting? Been knitting for a while? Don't intend to ever give it up? Just... just buy this. The level of care, detail, humour, clarity, and sheer helpfulness is unsurpassed. Beautifully written as well as beautiful to look at, too-- and since there are occasional little calculations and boxes to fill in, we feel that a digital download is an ideal presentation for this pattern. After all, you can print out 15 calculation boxes for the 15 different cardigans you'll make, rather than having to erase and rewrite on an original all the time.

This is the second in a brilliant series of Unpatterns for working with any yarn, any gauge (the first is this one). Its general description applies equally to this one as well. V-neck or crew, wrap or not, slender or Rubenesque-- this is for you. Includes the bonus extras for Girlie (waist) Shaping, Edgings, and Purl "Darts". See the entire Unpatterns collection here.
