Delancey Cardigan Plus Size
The body is knitted back and forth in one large piece on circular needles then divided to form the armholes. There is a seam at the top of each shoulder. Stitches for the set-in sleeves are picked up around the armhole and knitted from the top down. Stitches for the collar are also picked up along the edge, and short rows form the shawl collar.
*Note, the plus size version has a more generous fit through the arms and a slightly wider front band and collar.
