Grand Staff Cardi by Amy Gunderson *Universal Pattern*

Size Guide

This easy-to-wear cardigan features an edging knit at the same time as the fronts, A-line shaping, three quarter length sleeves, and just the right amount of stripes.

Back and fronts are knit from the bottom up and then seamed at the shoulders. Sleeves are worked by picking up stitches around the armhole, shaping the cap with short-rows, and the sleeve is then knit downward from there.

The sleeve caps are shaped with standard wrap and turn short rows. There is no need to do anything with the wraps, as they nest into the faux seam of the sleeve cap.
