Bettina is a modern version of the classic cardigan. With its simple, yet elegant wavy lace pattern, it is a versatile cardi equally at home over a cami and jeans or a summer dress. Bettina is a seamless cardigan: the body is worked flat in one piece to the armholes, before working the fronts and back separately. After seaming the shoulders, the sleeves are worked top down.

Cardi is worn with 1-3” of positive ease (more for larger sizes). Sample shown in 37.5”.

Skeins of recommended yarn needed: 2 (3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5).
