This elegant cardigan is a favorite here at Fine Points. The kit contains a variety of beautiful yarns selected by Liz Tekus, lead designer and owner of Fine Points.
The Bella Cardigan is worked in one piece from side to side, from the right sleeve cuff to the left sleeve cuff. After working the right sleeve, stitches are cast on at the beginning and end of the row to create the side edges of the back and right front. The back and front are worked as one piece in long rows across the width of the shoulder, then the work is split into two halves to create the neck opening. The left front is worked separately, then joined to the back at the left shoulder, and the piece is worked as one piece again down to the left sleeve cuff.
