As implied by the name “Hitofude”, meaning a single brush stroke in Japanese, this open front cardigan with an allover lace pattern is worked in one “yarn stroke” -- a continuous strand without cutting the yarn.

You will also need 5 stitch markers, crochet hook (3.25 mm), tapestry needle, spare double pointed or circular needle (same size or smaller than main needle), 2 waste yarns. Optional: 1 button.
