Pattern Notes

The cardigan is worked in 3 separate panels that are sewn together at the sides and shoulders.

Sleeves are then joined at the armhole and worked in turned rounds.

Ch 3 at beginning of rows counts as a dc.

When changing colors, yo with the new color on the stitch before the color change. This allows for a seamless color change.

Carry both the MC and CC throughout back panel (like tapestry crochet, but with dc). Do not cut the yarn for the post-stitch color work, but carry the colors as follows:

Carry MC throughout entire piece (even through all CC sections).

Carry CC color only through the CC sections. Drop the CC when working MC sections, then pick it back up when you get back to CC section.

When dropping a color, always leave it at the back of the work. This way any strands that may look messy will not be seen.
