The cardigan is knitted from top to bottom, back and forth on circular needles with short rows in the neck. The narrow stripes make the cardigan fun to knit, and you can even use up some leftover yarn. Italian cast on is used and increased with raglan. Finally, stitches are picked up for button posts. Italian cast off is used to get elastic and nice finishes on the rib. If you knit in the recommended yarn, it will be a thin and soft cardigan that is suitable to use both indoors and outdoors all year round!
