This simple cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down. The yoke has increases for the neck and raglan, then at the underarm the sleeve stitches are held and stitches are cast on between the back and fronts for the underarm and the body is worked straight down to the hem. The held sleeve stitches are returned to double-pointed needles and worked in the round to the cuff.

There are instructions for long or short sleeves and how to add buttons if desired.
