notes The Harvest cardigan is knit seamlessly, in rows, from the top down. Starting with the garter collar, you progress to work the yoke in rows, with increases at 4 'raglan' lines, and at neckline

The body and sleeves are separated, and then body and sleeves are knit in the round from underarm to hem and cuffs.
