Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2005: “Shirley Paden shows her mastery of lace patterns in this scallop-edged wrapped cardigan. The body is worked in an allover lace pattern, and the neckline is finished with a wide, ribbed shawl collar. Extra-long flaired cuffs add a retro elegance, and a simple ribbed belt provides a little waist shaping while it holds the fronts together.

Finished Size: 41 (47)” (104 119.5 cm) bust circumference, wrapped and belted. Note: Front overlap can be adjusted for a roomier fit to produce a slightly larger size when worn.

Yarn: Tahki/Stacy Charles Zara (100% merino; 136 yd 125 m/50 g): #1525 red, 18 (21) balls.


  • Body and sleeves - size 7 (4.5 mm).
  • Collar - size 6 (4 mm).
  • Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Stitch holders or square needles; size E/4 (3.5 mm) crochet hook (for belt CO); tapestry needle.

Gauge: 26 sts=4” (10 cm) and 43 rows=6” (15 cm) in miniature wings pattern from chart on larger needles.


  • The back and fronts contain an exact number of rows to ensure that that pattern meets correctly at the shoulders. To lengthen or shorten the body, add or subtract a full 10-row repeat of the miniature wings pattern below the armhole shaping; every 10 rows added or removed will lengthen or shorten the body by about 1ΒΌ” (3.2 cm). In order for the sleeve and collar pieces to match the body properly, do not make any length adjustments to the armhole or neck depths. For a longer jacket you may need to purchase more yarn.
  • Knit the first and last stitch of every row for selvedge stitches; these selvedge stitches are not shown on the chart.
  • The selvedge stitches are not included in calculating the measurements shown on the schematic.
  • If there are not enough stitches as a result of shaping to work a yarnover or decrease with its companion yarnover or decrease, work the sts in St st until there are the correct number of sts to resume working the pattern again.
