344 Elegant Empire

Says Hames: "Sophisticated chic and interesting construction make the Elegant Empire a 'must have/must knit' project. The easy Twisted Cable creates a flattering empire fit. Cardigan is worked sideways in two pieces beginning at the sleeve and finishing at centre back. Two options are given for joining the back seam (make it almost invisible, or a neat seamed appearance-- Ed.). Finish it all with a favorite single button." Began at the cuff, sleeves are worked in the round, then split for the sides of the garment. A baby version, created by popular demand, is available here.

Even as an accomplished knitter, I am finding some of the instructions a bit confusing. I wish the legend included all of the abbreviations, not just some.
