Description: The first and essential thing to note is that this pattern is in a very poor condition. However it's a pretty design and I will include a clean digital copy along with the original. The cardigan is knitted in one section up to the armholes and then split so that the back and fronts can be knitted separately; sleeves knitted separately as usual.
