Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2009: “Lepore’s three-quarter-sleeve cardi embodies her signature femininity. The back lace flounce is shaped with increases that occur in the main lace pattern, while the sleeves, lapels and bottom border are worked in a fisherman’s rib. The body of the sweater is knit in one piece from the top down in a variety of lace patterns in ‘Rio’ by Tahki Yarns/Tahki.Stacy Charles and ‘Baby Kid Extra’ by Filatura Di Crosa/Tahki.Stacy Charles held together. The lapels, worked from the bottom up, are knit separately and sewn on.”
