A bulky, loose-fitting cardigan with large and wide cable twists on the front, back, and sleeves.
Kuiper is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed. The front and neck bands are picked up from the edges and knit last. Due to the fabric distortion from the wide cable pattern, it is recommended to take width measurements of pieces where the cable crosses. Blocking is integral to the outcome of this cardigan.
