This cardigan is crocheted in 3 panels: 1 back panel + 2 front panels. One of the great things about this piece is that the sleeves are worked into these panels to avoid any seams where a sleeve attachment would usually take place. This shell stitch pattern is not interrupted by a seam, but it continues from one sleeve across to the other.
As these 3 panels are seamed together, a special method is used to attach at the shoulders so that the seam is invisible and the panels just blend into one another.
The Grand Arches Cardi is meant to be a very oversized fit with up to 14” positive ease. I wanted a really loose-fitting, flowy, robe style piece that could be layered over top of other outfits.
