Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Holiday 2008: “Casually dramatic, this loose-fitting bell-sleeved duster by Lisa Hoffman dresses up or down. the darker main body, worked in one piece to the underarms with Artyarns’ ‘Ultramerino 4,’ is knit in a diamond cable and lace pattern. The paler upper portions take ‘Silk Mohair Glitter,’ also by Artyarns, for their eyelet-peppered cable rib.”

“Standard-fitting coat in lace patterns with scalloped hem and contrast yarn bodice and collar.”

Notes:

  1. To minimize the variegated effect that comes with knitting hand-dyed yarn, work with 2 balls at once, that is 2 rows with one ball and 2 rows with 2nd ball.
  2. Chart 1 is worked using A only. Chart 2 is worked using A & B held tog with same needles size as body.
  3. Chart 2 is a diminishment of chart 1, with the cables continuing as established.
