Cecilia is a sweet lace cardigan that is perfect to throw on over your favourite summer dress. Knit in one piece from the top down, it works up surprisingly quickly from a few skeins of your favourite sock yarn.

This pattern is suitable for intermediate and advanced knitters. It combines an all-over lace pattern with raglan shaping, and beginners may find increasing in lace pattern challenging.

When you download this pattern, you will get access to two PDFs:

  • 5-page written pattern
  • 3 or 4-page worksheet for each size, setting out stitch counts, increase rows and how to increase in pattern
