This cardigan is designed by Kristín Brynja Gunnarsdóttir for L+2 yarn in three sizes.
The body is worked flat and the button band is worked simultaneously on smaller needles. The sleeves are worked in the round. Sleeves and body are joined on one circular needle at the armholes and the yoke is worked flat with raglan shaping. A zipper is sewn onto the button band from the cast on edge and the entire length of the sweater including the hood, so that the hood can be closed completely.
