Pattern Notes

The body of the cardigan is worked top down seamlessly and the hood is worked upwards by unraveling the provisional cast on at the neck.

Circular needles are used to accommodate large number of stitches and curves.

Sleeves are worked in the round using Magic Loop Method (you can use DPNs if you are not familiar with this method).

The length of the sleeve is made on the shorter side. Check the dimension. If you want a longer sleeve then work additional several rows before the sleeve shaping.

Hem and front edging is worked in rib in flat knitting.

Wings and antennae are worked in DPNs and then attached at the back.
