Yangtze Cardigan

$8.00

Yangtze is worked in pieces from the bottom up. After finishing, the pieces are seamed using mattress stitch.

Due to the nature of the stitch repeat, for some sizes the total width of the front is slightly larger than the width of the back. It will be unnoticeable, and will also give a nicer fit to the finished piece, accommodating the bust and keeping the buttons from gaping when closed.
