Worked in one piece from the bottom up, this cardigan has intarsia areas of stranded color work. Two balls of the contrast color will be attached to the garment: one for the right front and one for the center back. This garment requires intarsia wrapping at the edge of the pattern areas and stranded color work to bring both colors across the pattern areas.
