“Inca Glory” is a short-sleeved stockinette-based cardigan. There is enough openwork to make the sweater lacy and lightweight and enough stockinette stitch to maintain stability. Flutter sleeves flow and drape gracefully around the arms, and there is an easy fit around the midsection.
The sweater is knit from the top down in one piece. Stitches are set aside for the sleeves and knitting continues through the body. Sleeve stitches are picked up and worked in the round. Except for buttons, snaps and optional buttonhole strengthening, no sewing is needed.
The pattern includes instructions for side shaping. These may be omitted for straight sides, which will require more yarn. Lace patterns are provided in chart form only.
Inca Glory contains instructions for six sizes ranging from Women’s XS - 2XL, to fit bust 28-50” (71–125 cm).
