Inspired by a vintage baby sweater, this lace yoke cardigan is worked top down in the round. Plenty of tiny picots frame the cuffs and hemline of this loose fitting garment. There are no seams to worry with or buttonholes to remember.

Just for kicks, I cast on with an aran weight yarn to find when worked exactly as the pattern is written, the lace yoke fit me, a size 36. I worked the body and sleeves for a custom fit (worked even with no shaping) and bound off according to the pattern. Having access to an unlimited supply of yarn, I really don’t know how much yarn I used. I suppose I could weigh it. A picture to follow soon.
