First, we will start with the front panels. We start working the ribbed hem, then we start knitting along the long edge of our ribbed hem. After a few rows, we will give some shape and finally we will finish. Both front panels are identical. Once we’ve completed our front panel, we start working on the back panel. Starting with the ribbed hem, then working along the long edge, we knit until we reach a certain height. Both sleeves are worked in the same way starting with the ribbed cuff and working your way along the long edge where we eventually increase a bit.
Once all the pieces are crocheted we sew them together with a thread needle, then begin the ribbing along the inside edge of the cardigan.
