It can also be worked with the garter carriage.

in  CARINO incorporating the 'CLASSIC SHOULDER LINE' for both the jumper and the cardigan. A rewarding addition to any wardrobe because it can be worn together or individually. Knitted in Stocking Stitch with ribbed welts and cuffs but a Stocking Stitch neckband.

 

Yarn requirement:  350 gram of Carino already wound double for each garment.

The cardigan pattern can be used to knit a long  sleeve jumper. Simply omit the front band and cast on for the front as for the back and work the neckline on each side of centre '0' as stated for the right/left front of the cardigan. AS there is no centre front opening reduce the neckband stitches by 14 stitches, i.e. cast on 156 stitches instead of 170.

Close-up of the Classic Shoulder Line.
Book No.3 in the KNIT TO FINISH series deals in great detail and step-by-step instructions with this famous and celebrated style.
By bringing the shoulder seam to the back a smooth and perfectly fitting shoulder is achieved.


Very often an unsuccessful shoulder seam (together with the neckline) can ruin the whole effort, be that with an ordinary yarn or a quality yarn.
