Every child needs a few cover-up cardies. Ferris Wheel, the little sibling to Summer Festival, is reminiscent of ferris wheels carousels and all things fun and festive.

Knit top-down and seamlessly, this lightweight and easy to wear cardigan is the perfect long lounging cardie for throwing on over anything! Deep pockets and back feature lace make it eye-catching yet casual.

The construction is a slight twist on the traditional raglan cardigan. It features a simple but cute circular lace motif in the brooch position and running down one side and the back of the body. This circular motif evokes images of katherine wheels and ferris wheels, such distinctly Summer memories.

Both charts and instructions are included for the lace sections.

NOTE: Ferris Wheel is part of a series of four related patterns available separately or as part of an ebook.

The related pattern, Carousel, is a cropped version of this cardigan, much like a 50s bolero. The bodice and sleeves are worked slightly differently in each of these patterns to cater for the different fit and ease in the different style of sleeves.

The final two patterns are adult versions of these two patterns; Summer Carnival and Summer Festival.
