The cardigan is worked from top down in one piece, which makes adjusting the lengths easy. The neck is shaped with short rows and this also creates a nice wider stripe around the neckline.
I fell in love with slip stitch pattern when I first made socks with slipped stitches for my daughter. I also used it in Checkered Mittens. Can’t get enough.
Also my father was kind enough to model the cardigan for me. Standing on our back yard in +25 C (77 degrees Fahrenheit) and direct sunlight was a brave thing to do. From these photos you can also see how the cardigan fits with different ease. On the photos above, the cardigan is modeled with zero ease and on the last photo, there are a few inches of positive ease.
