is a cardigan knitted from side to side.
Only one ball of each yarn was used in this project, except for the yarn used for the collar and all edges.
The cardigan begins from one cuff, and ends on the other cuff. It has a shawl collar.
This is a very good way to use all those odd balls of yarn.
The basic pattern for the cardigan is garter stitch using the Fibonacci series for making the stripes.
You can work this cardigan in solid color yarns or in variegated yarns.
Each of these options will create a different look.
