#109 Lace Inset Shaped Cardigan or Vest
8 sts = 3” 7.5 cm and 17 rows = 4” 10 cm in St st on larger-size needles.
12 sts of Lace Panel = approx. 3.5” 7.5 cm wide on larger-size needles.
Here is a cardigan (and vest) knitting pattern to top all with its wonderful attention to detail. Bold curvy scroll lace panels (that mirror each other) create a gorgeous statement on the front of the cardigan, extending to the generous collar, which can be worn open as shown or buttoned up to different heights for a variety of moods.
The same scroll lace is repeated on the dramatically textured belled sleeves. Beautiful shaping is accentuated with reverse Stockinette stitch seams on the back, front, and sleeves. The length is just to the hip. Big buttons complete the detailing.
This is the masterpiece you have been waiting to make for yourself! Knit in a popular wool/mohair blend yarn that comes in an amazing range of colors. The bulky weight also makes for a quick knit.
This pattern includes a vest version with garter stitch armhole edgings to replace the sleeves. You’ll want to make both versions!
