THIS IS A PRINTED PATTERN.

Ellen’s Cardigan is knit flat from the top down with raglan increases. The neckline is shaped with short rows. The cardigan is knit in stockinette stitch, with a vertical rib along the front edges for the button bands. The buttonholes are worked at the end (so you do not need to work them as you knit the button band together with the body of the cardigan). The sleeves are knit in the round in stockinette stitch either on double pointed needles (dpns) or on circular needles using the Magic Loop technique. As an extra detail, Ellen's Cardigan features inner pockets.
