Named for the Latin word for “jewel” Gemma is a simple cardigan with lace “necklace” at the collar that is knit in one piece from the top down with a circular yoke. Short rows are used to raise the back collar, and sleeves are knit down from the yoke. The slightly puffed, three-quarter length sleeves have cuffs of the same lace as the collar. Gemma is a flattering cardigan that is sure to become a wardrobe staple!
