This cardigan is knitted back and forth, from the top down.
First, the neckline is knitted. Stitches are afterwards picked up along the long side of the neckline for the yoke. The neckline is knitted in rib stitch and continues as button bands down the whole cardigan, with button holes knitted along the way.
The increases on the yoke are knitted every row, and always on only one side of raglan stitch markers- respectively on the back and front, and on the arms. At the same time, increases are knitted along the neckline, creating a flattering v-neck.
The arms are knitted in the round with evenly spaced decreases for a narrow fit.
