Andrea Mowry wanted an easy-to-slip-on layer while traveling that was similar to the Traveler Hoodie, but easier to take on and off in small, confined spaces (hello planes). This is a drop shoulder, open cardi with big pockets.

This cardigan is worked from the bottom up, seamlessly, except for the underarms. The shoulders are finished with an exposed seam using the 3 needle bind off. The collar & cuffs are picked up and knitted out from the body. The pockets are knit separately and sewn on once the cardigan is finished.
