Form and function unite as one in this clever cardigan: a built-in belt wraps around the waist and stays put with the help of a large button. Knit from the bottom up, the Belt Cardi is knit back and forth, and the sleeves are knit in the round up to the underarm where they are joined to the yoke. The border is knit along with the body, and once the yoke is completed, the border continues along the neckline. As for the belt, it is picked up and knit outward from the border.
Finished Measurements: 20 (24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44)” finished waist measurement; garment is meant to be worn with no ease. If your waist is between sizes, knit the next size up and make the belt shorter.
