Your link doesn't work so I have no idea what it looks like.

Here's the complet link - http://www.classiceliteyarns.com/pattern_detail.php?patternID=62#, it's the red one near the bottom.

These are really easy, you essentially knit a large rectangle with slits for the armholes, and put sleeves on. Here's a smaller one at Lion - http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60648A.html?noImages=0
You can make it longer by casting on more stitches.

Thanks Jan for letting me know the link doesn't work. I don't understand why it doesn't work.

Thanks Sue for correcting my link.

Q1: Can someone tell me what Sl (bolded) in the following means?

Row 1 (RS): Sl 1, k to end of row.

Q2: Also can someone tell me what kind of knitting pattern they use for the
collar and the body of the wrap cardigan in Ariosa?

Thanks in advance.

Slip the first st, knit all the others in the row.

The collar looks like a rib, the body is a sort of broken rib. I found a more detailed picture on ravelry. It's knit along the long edge, first in 1x1 ribbing for about 4-5" then a rib with garter ribbing between the k1 sts. So it would be k1, p 3 or 4, k1, px and purl all on the WS.

So the 1x1 ribbing would be done in the following manner.

Row 1: Knit 1, *purl 1, knit 1,* repeat from * to * until the end of the row.

Row 2: Purl 1, * knit 1, purl 1,* repeat from * to * until the end of the row.


Then the rib with a garter would be done in the following manner:

RS: k1, p4, k1 p4, k1 p4, k1
WS: p, p, p, p, p, p

What about the cuffs on the sleeves?
