This cardigan is worked mostly in a modular fashion. First, the back cable is worked from the bottom up. The sides are worked by picking up stitches from the sides of the cable panel and working outward toward the sleeve cuffs. Stitches for the ribbed lower edging are picked up from the body and worked downward. Stitches for the collar are worked from held cable panel stitches and picked up from the body, then worked outward.
This pattern includes written directions as well as charts.
