You knit it from the top down like a normal neck down cardigan, but the front has a big space missing. You then pick up the stitches long ways and knit the front center panel and three needle bind it off. A lovely sheer ripple panel runs down the front.
I cast on Saturday night while my nephew was over. He asked me to show him how to knit, so we did a few stitches together. It was fun to see how fast he got the concept and he would certainly be a continental knitter. Even though I showed him how to knit English, he had been watching me knit continental and he did it that way right away! I about past the divide for sleeves point and am now working on the body portion.
