… carré cardigan pattern …

The pattern is up, after being tested and oh, go get a look at the results

Carré is a cardigan with an unusual construction, in one piece and nearly completely seamless (only a little sewing at the wrong side for the pockets). It is worked top down, starting with a provisional cast on at the top of the center section. All waist shaping is done in this center stockinette section.

The large bands are worked all around – hence the name carré (square) – and hide 2 pockets. You will need 3 or more circular needles to work them.

The sleeve inset is based on the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Myers, SusieM on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/people/SusieM)
