When my children were born, I had an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and I thought a simple word, “merci” (French for thank you) would be a fitting name for this simple wrap cardigan.
CONSTRUCTION: The yoke is knit seamlessly, top-down. Sleeve stitches are put on hold while body is worked (button bands are worked as you go). Sleeves stitches are put back on needles and worked in the round. Stitches are then picked up along the front neckline to work the applied I-cord edging. A few stitches are picked up at underarms to work I-cord tie closures.
SKILLS REQUIRED: long tail and backward loop cast ons (links to tutorials provided), knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, picking up stitches, binding off, working an applied I-cord (explanations provided), working a regular I-cord (explanations provided)
