Attaboy Cardigan by Justyna Lorkowska
Attaboy Cardigan is worked from top to bottom with raglan sleeve shaping. The upper body is worked in stocking stitch in the main colour, then the 3 additional colours are introduced below the waist in the False Flame stitch, a pattern which gives the illusion of complicated colorwork without actually carrying yarn anywhere! What could be simpler or more relaxing to knit? Once you finish the body, the ribbed front bands and shawl collar are picked up and shaped with short rows, then finally the sleeves are worked, in the round, and finished with an abbreviated False Flame pattern on long cuffs. If you like, work up the ribbed belt to fasten the cardigan.
