The Fleuris Cardigan is a V-neck raglan sweater with a floral lace design as its centerpiece. It is pretty enough for dress up but comfortable enough for every day wear and play. The sweater is worked from the bottom up. The lace portion is worked on a needle one size bigger than you’ll need for the rest of the sweater. Sleeves are worked separately and in the round, before being joined to the body for the raglan decreases across the yoke. The button band is worked at the same time as the sweater for ease of finishing. The floral lace stitch pattern is both charted and written row by row.
