Product Description

Warning: if you intend to knit this pattern, be prepared to be stopped everywhere you go for compliments on your cardigan! Gorgeous flower lace adorns this seamless cardigan to create a show-stopping piece that will catch everyone’s eye. The classic shape and elegant details will ensure this cardigan stays in your wardrobe for years to come.

The cardigan is a top-down knit. Work is cast on at the collar and increased in the lace pattern to the sleeve split. The sleeve stitches are removed from the work and placed on hold. The remainder of the body is worked straight and bound off. Then the sleeves are picked up and worked straight until they are the desired length. Blocking is an absolute must on this pattern!

Yarn: 575 (625, 700, 800) (1000, 1100, 1200) (1300, 1400, 1500) (1600, 1700, 1850, 2000) yards/ 525 (575, 650, 730) (920, 1000, 1100) (1200, 1300, 1375) (1475, 1550, 1700, 1825) meters of DK weight yarn. Shown in Marianated Yarns Scrumptious DK colorway “Olive This, Olive That”. Note that this is an estimate only! Your actual yardage may vary.
