Black is my favorite color next to deep red.I can see me wearing a cardigan like this. Simple, yet chic.
The yarn is a bulky weight. The deep "hem" is garter stitch, as are the buttonbands and the deep cuffs. A very easy pattern. No, nothing is worked separately. Everything is "knit in as you go". The hood, of course, is picked up around the neck and knit, after the shoulders are seamed.
