  • Cardigan is worked widthwise as a single flat rectangle then sewn together.

  • Piece is worked in a double-ended Tunisian crochet stitch that requires 2 balls of yarn (A and B) and turning your work.

  • In the forward pass, the last loop is picked up in the horizontal top bar between the last two stitches.

  • Tip: Since cardigan has a turned over folded collar and can be worn in two ways, attach new yarn when needed with an invisible technique such as Russian Join or Braided Join to minimize weaving in ends in the middle of the work.
