Description: Cardigan knit horizontally, from the button hole band on the right front to the button edge on the left front.

Pattern recommends Hifa Cotton Yarn 600g for size medium and a gauge of 23 sts to 4 inches on size 3mm needles
I used Cotton Sport by idena and size 2.5mm needles. Haven't measured the gauge yet.

Strange looking thing, really...
Front neck with moss stitch panel.
Underam gusset made with short rows. I wrapped stitches on the short rows, even though the pattern doesn't call for it.
There are 5 gussets along the lower edge, giving it the bell shape.
This is a closeup of the gusset on the middle of the back.
When it's folded up like it will be when I sew the shoulders together, it looks much less bizarre and reveals itself as a wonderfully form-fitting feminine ...thing. :o)
An almost arm!
