Greta Cardigan - knitting instructions

Knitting instructions for the Greta Cardigan by LOTILDA. The oversize cardigan is knitted with increases at the raglan slants from top to bottom (RVO). The body narrows towards the hips, and the front pieces widen towards the bottom. The sleeves are knitted in back and forth rows, become narrower by a few decreases towards the bottom and finally closed with mattress stitch (knitting in rounds is possible but not described in the instructions). All cuffs and the subsequently knitted neckline panel are knitted as lifting stitch cuffs.
