This sweater is worked using the Cocoknits Method, a commonsense system for knitting seamless, tailored sweaters from the top down. The Cocoknits Method is explained in detail in Cocoknits Sweater Workshop by Julie Weisenberger.

All of the page numbers in this pattern refer to the pages in Cocoknits Sweater Workshop, where the techniques are explained in detail.

Franca is a comfy-casual cardigan with a perfectly slouchy shape. Everything is knitted as you go, including the front band and the free-hanging, kangaroo-style pockets, which means after binding off, you just have a couple gaps to close before blocking and curling up in it.
