Niya is worked in one piece from the bottom up with 2 strands of Lunar held together throughout. The body features a Diagonal Rib hem, Slipped Stitch front edgings, and a shallow shawl collar. Sleves are worked flat then set in and seamed. Adjusting the length of the cardigan is not recommended as it will disrupt the line of the front edging; if changes to the length are necessary, they should be worked immediately after completing the chart.
