The roomy Velum Cardigan is worked in one piece, beginning at the lower edge of the back. Once the back and fronts are worked, stitches for the edging are cast on and then worked in lace all around the body, joining the narrow lace band by picking up stitches along the body and decreasing the two pieces together.
