Garden Party Cardi
Now available as a Ravelry download
This sweet cardigan is just the thing to pop over a dress or tank top for cool evenings.
Knit in one piece from the bottom up, it uses raglan shaping and has no seams. The bottom hem and sleeve edges are finished with a 1x1 rib. The ribbed button-band is knitted along with the body of the sweater which is in seed stitch (moss stitch), so there’s no sewing required. It can be made with or without buttons.
Instructions are provided for a short-sleeved or 3/4 length sleeve version.
The delicate trim at the sleeves and waist has stripes, lace and optional beading for a pretty, feminine look.
It would also be effective with a touch of metallic or sparkly yarn, for an evening look.
Note: Pattern has been Tech-edited, and test-knitted in every size.
