miMa (mini Mariechen) is worked seamlessly from the top down. The cardigan is worked back and forth with raglan increases to shape the yoke. Fronts are worked in Broken Seed Stitch with a cute textured lace panel down the center. Once yoke shaping is complete, sleeve stitches are placed on hold to work the body first top down to the hem. Buttonhole band, button band and neck finishing are worked next. Sleeve stitches are then picked up again to work the sleeves top down in the round to the cuffs. As this cardigan is worked from the top down it is advisable to try it on from time to time to check the length and overall fit. The length and width of the yoke are easily adjustable by adding/ reducing raglan increases.
