DAA (don’t ask again) Cardigan by Isabell Kraemer Yarn Kit
Isabell describes her DAA cardigan as “a cute and classic cardigan worked seamlessly from the top down. The yolk is shaped by using a modified version of the contiguous set-in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers. When the yoke shaping is complete, the sleeve stitchesare placed on hold and the underarm stitches are cst on. the the body is worked back and forth to the ribbing. Instructions for optional pockets are also provided. Buttons bands and neck finishing are worked next. then the sleeve stitches are picked up to work them in rounds top down to the cuffs.”
