Cardigan is worked seamlessly from the neck down, using the contiguous set-in sleeve method. Cardigan fronts are continuously increased to form an angled shape. Stitches are picked up along the entire cardigan front openings and back neck, then knit in ribbing to create deep lapels and collar.
Body of the cardigan can be made longer as desired, but keep in mind that the stitch count will increase due to the selvage shaping, and more stitches may need to be picked up for collar ribbing.
