Cardigan is worked from the top down beginning with the collar. This is worked in two sections starting from a provisional cast on in the centre of the back neck. Stitches are picked up along the edge of the collar to form the yoke which is then shaped with raglan increases. Stitches are set aside for the sleeves and the body is worked down in one piece with shaping. Finally the sleeve stitches are placed onto dpns and worked down in the round.
