Sophia - Crosswise Cardigan
Sophia cardigan is worked crosswise in Chevron pattern with dolman sleeves.
Starting at the bottom of the sleeves with a Rib pattern border of 11 rows, increasing on each side for sleeves and side seam. When the sleeve length and the shoulder are reached, the piece is divided in two. The back is worked first. The stitches from left and right back pieces are cast off together mid back at the same time. The front pieces are continued - for the slanting V-neckline, 3 sts in 2 rows are decreased. 5 Button holes are worked in the right part. The body is worked in Chevron pattern (18 sts wide). It is not possible to carry this pattern throughout so the extra sts are worked in the Side sts pattern.
An I-cord edge is worked along the neck, V-neck closure and the bottom.
