Welcome to the Taboluli KAL!

I've just introduced the cardigan here in this video, showing you the construction and suggesting sizing and possible modifications.

Clue 1

Clue 1 covers the upper part of the body. You start with a provisional cast on across the middle of the upper yoke and then you work the right side of the upper yoke. When the right saddle is complete you undo the provisional cast-on and repeat for the left saddle shoulder, putting the stitches on a holder at the end for the left sleeve. When the saddles are complete you will pick up stitches along the back of the saddle and work straight down to the underarm increases. Increases are worked at each end to create the armhole shaping. These stitches are then put on a holder also. Finally you will pick up stitches on each side of the front of the saddles (with 2 balls of yarn) and you will work neck shaping (shown in the front charts). When the neck shaping is complete you will work straight down to the armhole increases and then they will be worked in the same way as the back.

Clue 2

In clue 2 we work on the body of the cardigan; first joining the front and back and then working the body from there down. In the video I'll talk about the pocket directions and how the back increases happen. I'll talk through a few of the problems knitters are encountering along the way as well.

Clue 3

We move on to the sleeves now; first picking up stitches, then working the short row sleeve cap and finally working from the top down with decreases.

Clue 4

It's time to finish your cardigan off now, this clue is all about pockets, front bands and of course blocking!
