Dare to Make It Knit-Along: An Easy Little Cardi, Part Twocomments (2) December 4th, 2008
This week we are going to separate the sleeves, place the stitches on stitch holders, and begin to knit the body of the sweater. Here is where you will be strategically creating decrease stitches to accomplish the sophisticated fit. Bust darts come up from the bottom front of the cardi and decrease shaping is formed up the middle of the back, providing a slimming waistline. Because of the ingenious shaping, this sweater will be flattering for all body shapes and sizes. Give it a go!
