Coquelicot Ribbons Cardigan
This cardigan was inspired by shawl styling with a touch of the poppy shade, coquelicot.
• The skirt is worked in one piece from
the bottom up. After completing the
lace edging, the skirt is shaped with
decreases worked in the center of
each marked side panel.
• The bodice is worked in two identical
lace rectangles. Each rectangle is
centered on the shoulder line with one
half hanging down in front or in back,
and its short selvedges are sewn to the
top of the empire band during finishing.
The bodice pieces are seamed
together for a few inches at center
back to raise the back V-neck opening.
