Roxanna is a slightly cropped cardi worked in one piece from the bottom up to the underarms. The fronts and back are then separated and worked to the shoulders, which are joined with a three-needle bindoff. Sleeve stitches are picked up from armholes and knitted down with sleeve cap shaping using short rows. A seed stitch band is picked up and worked along the two fronts and neck.
Pattern Description from Knitting for Peace: “This hat features a unique construction technique. The body is worked flat, from side to side, with a vertical stripe pattern. Simultaneously, decreases are worked on one end and increases on the other, which gives the hat a parallelogram shape--a rectangle with a slant. When the parallelogram is sewn together, the stripes naturally swirl around the hat.”
