PATTERN NOTES
This cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down. The body and sleeves are separated at the underarm. Stitches for the neck band are picked up and worked flat. Short rows are used to create a shawl collar.

When working m1L or m1R on wrong side rows, be sure to purl these increased stitches (see Abbreviations list for instructions).
