"This cardigan is worked on a bias," explains Fard. "It starts with a triangle at the side of the front or back, increased until the width is as wide as half of the bust, then continued on a slant to size. It has regular drop shoulder sleeves and the front is closed with an open-end zipper." Terribly flattering and fun to make. The sleeves are drop in that the caps are flat, but they are set into indented armholes for a better fit at the shoulder than a true drop shoulder. Single crochet and backwards single crochet are used for trim, and each is illustrated with a photograph (American crochet terminology).
