Alla is a lacy yoke cardigan knitted from the top down. Although it may look complicated, the lace motifs are deceptively simple and the investment in time and yarn is similar to the one of a lace shawl. The pattern includes charted and written instructions as well as a step-by-step blocking tutorial, making it a suitable project even for lace beginners. It comes into 9 sizes from XXXS to 3X (teenagers + adults). Before blocking, the cardigan will look ridiculously small: don’t let this puzzle you but make sure the yarn you are using is suitable for lace and won’t spring back to original shape once stretched.
Alla is how dear friends and family called Aðalbjörg Jónsdóttir, an Old Icelandic woman who made wonderful lace dresses: I’m working on a book about her work and I couldn’t help but being inspired!
