Starting July 15 we’re having an Etching KAL in the Woolly Mammoth Knits Ravelry group. We’d love for you to join us! If you think you might be interested, please check out the KAL thread here: Etching KAL. The pattern for Etching is 30% off for KAL participants.
The sweetness of a little lace, the spice of cables and a lot of straightforward stotckinette stitch blend together to create Etching. This short-sleeved cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down with raglan increases. It features cabled side panels and lace detailing above the bottom hem and on the sleeves as well as a cabled collar and front bands. Knit in a sport-weight yarn, it’s the perfect light-weight cardi for spring and summer.
