Construction of the red fine knit cardigan

Knit all 5 pieces
Steam each to final shape and size - this is very time consuming! It fits another of my working 'rules' - spend as long on pressing as on stitching. It is the attention to details like this that give the professional couture finish that I am aiming for.

This is what the sleeve looks like once it has been steamed! Finally I stitch the pieces together using a sewing machine (Janome)
