#74 Top-Down Long Lace Cardigan
From SweaterBabe: Here’s THE project to make this season! It has all the latest detailing and is knit from the top down for minimal finishing.
The bulky yarn is a soft merino wool blend, giving this cardigan a wonderfully cozy feel. The slightly wider collar allows whatever you layer underneath to show through. The shorter sleeves are 3/4 length if you leaves the cuffs down, or above the elbow if you fold them up. The bold lace panel design adds wonderful sophistication and the knit-in pockets are practical, fun, and so now.
Substantial ribbing at the bottom adds a nice finish to the longer tunic length and big, beautiful buttons all the way down allow you to wear it open many different ways.
This is a sweater to wear with EVERYTHING. (I get so many compliments on it!) Plus, it’s an easy style that can be worn by many figures.
And lastly, it is knit from the top down, so you can add length to the sleeves or body if you wish by just knitting more rows!
