The cardigan is knit top down with raglan increases. The neck opening is shaped with short rows.
As the raglan increases are knit without raglan stitch in between the increases, a “ladder look” is created.
The sleeves are knit in the round with the magic loop method or on double pointed needles. The ribbed hems at both front pieces and the back are finished separately in different lengths.
