Euphoria Cardigan is an oversized model with a slanting shoulder seam, deep v-neck and long voluminous sleeves. The structure and pattern is made by a slip stitch technique. The edges and plackets around the neck and at the end of the sleeves are made in double knitting.
The cardigan is knit top down, starting on the back piece making increases on each side, shaping the slanting shoulder. Then stitches are knit up along each shoulder seam and worked as the two front pieces. Increases towards the chest on each side shapes the v-neck. At the bottom of arm holes and v-neck all pieces are put together and worked back and forth, and finished with a ribbing. The placket is worked in double knitting.
Stitches are knit up along the arm hole, and the sleeves are worked with decreases, which are fully integrated into the pattern, along the underneath of the sleeve. The sleeves are finished with a double knit cuff.
