This cardigan is knitted from the top down. Starting with the neckline using the provisional cast-on method, raglan increases are worked to create the yoke section. Sleeve stitches are placed on hold whilst the body is completed, then sleeve stitches are knitted last.
The raglan sleeves and front panels are worked in simple stockinette stitch, while the delicate Daisy Stitch pattern on the back keeps your knitting interesting. Thanks to the wonderful stitch definition of Rosy Green Wool's Cheeky Merino Joy, it shows very beautifully. A subdued color, like Cedar, emphasizes the gentle look.
