Touch of Grey Cardigan

A great layering piece, this buttonless belted short-sleeved cardigan is knit in one piece with limited seaming. It is knit on circular needles, working back and forth from the bottom to the underarms. At that point the sleeve stitches are cast on and the back and front pieces are divided and each worked separately. Short rows are used to shape the shoulders. Front and back shoulder stitches are attached by binding off the stitches together using the three-needle bind off technique. Finally, stitches are picked up and knitted to create the neck band ribbing, sleeve ribbing and front bands. The only seaming you’ll have to do is at the underarm on each side—that’s it!
