Guinevere is the perfect little cardigan for the warmer weather. This cap sleeve cardigan is full of little details and interesting textures. Two different lace stitches make up the bottom then continue on to a jersey/reverse jersey fully shaped neck finish. The body is then completed with 1x1 rib cap sleeves.

Pattern is 18 pages long and includes:

  • written and charted instructions for lace patterns
  • detailed schematic
  • fully charted neck shaping for each size (both right and left sides)
  • suggestions for fit modification
  • flat knit construction with minimal finishing (shoulder, side, and armhole seams only)

P.S. A note about the sizing. Usually, my size range goes above a size 42” bust, but for this particular design, I really felt the larger sizes needed a dedicated plus size pattern. There are just too many special design changes for the larger sizes to truly make it a successful style for ample knitters. I do plan on adding larger sizes later on down the road (complete with appropriately sized garment pictured).
