… amande cardigan …

The first one of the Amande’s is here.

Amande cardigan is a cardigan with a very unusual construction, similar to her sister amandine cardigan here and here

It is worked seamlessly, in the round from the shouldertop downwards and sideways. It’s a bit tricky to start the special shoulder shaping, but after this first challenging part, it’s plain, mindless knitting.

The cardigan is worked flat from the neckopening downwards. The sleeves are worked in the round from the top down and have some matching elbow patches. Stitches are picked at the neck and fronts (cardigan) to work the bands.
