Garter Check Cardigan

This cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom to the armholes (with waist and bust shaping) then the fronts and back are worked separately to the shoulders. The sleeves are worked flat from the bottom up, then sewn in. Stitches for the collar are picked up from the neck edge, and the collar is shaped with decreases at the front edges, and increases at the shoulders so that the collar lies flat.

The simple knit-and-purl stitch pattern is presented in written format.
