Kitsunetsuki Cardigan Knitting Pattern Download
Its fitted shape emphasizes the figure, while details on the front resemble a fox's head and the five-strand cable on the back recalls the five tails of a kitsune. The body of this cardigan is worked back and forth in one piece from the lower edge to the underarms. The sleeves are worked separately in the round, then the sleeves and body are joined to work the yoke.
