Autumn leaves is a light and airy cardigan, perfect to wear on an autumn day or late summer evenings. The sleeves are knitted separately flat and kept on stitch holders. The cardigan is worked from the bottom up in one piece, then the sleeves are joined to the body to form the yoke. Climbing leaves around the yoke with sparkly button closure will delight any young girls. Simple leaf design, popping in and out giving its 3D effect. Row by row instruction makes this into a relaxing weekend project.
