Pattern is no longer available.

With leaf-lined paths leading to a flattering v-neck, this soft, lace-weight cardigan is a perfect way to make lace that’s a bit easier to wear. A versatile pattern with a flattering nipped-in waist, it’s easy to customize; instructions for three-quarter and full-length sleeves are also included.

Pattern Notes

With a stockinette st body, this pattern is easily adaptable to working in one piece to the armholes, instead of in Front and Back pieces. Due to the small gauge, subtracting the selvedge sts from the sides is optional; I’d recommend casting on the recommended number of sts, placing markers to mark side seams, and following directions as written, working the Fronts and Back in separate pieces after armhole sts are bound off.
