Katrina Ballerina Lace Layering Cardigan
extended- Feb. 15th! Until January 31, 50% off the proceeds will go to Haiti Disaster Relief!
This sweet layering cardigan was originally designed for my beautiful sister Katie! A perfect cardigan for ballet class or throwing on over your favorite tank or long sleeved shirt, the Katrina Ballerina Lace Layering Cardigan will work well in almost any wool, silk, or cashmere!
Knit from the top down, the cardigan is comprised of two main sections: a modified, gentle ballet neck with the increases that happen before the sleeves separate from the body, and the long Bodice Lace body section, which reminds me of traditional ballet corsets. It is a very flattering piece—the vertical lines slim and lengthen the torso, and the top section stops above your mid-bust, creating a more modern A-line silhouette!
Needle size: US 8 or 9, whatever is needed to obtain gauge.
Yardage: S (33-35” bust) 400-450 yds , M (36-38” bust) 500 yds. , L (40-42” bust) 550 yds, XL (43”+ bust) 600-700+ yds-- All yardage will vary depending on desired length
Helpful Hint-- this sweater is designed to fit without anything beneath and have zero negative ease… if you want to layer it, I recommend going up a full sweater size.
This pattern will work well with both semi-solid and variegated yarns :)
Errata Row 8 of the warm-up section-- instead of “P to the last marker” it should read “P to the last 6 stitches”
Typo a very few patterns were mailed out by mistake which read that on Row 25 and 26 you should repeat button band rows 9 and 10. This should read button band rows 11 and 12.
In addition to being available here on Ravelry, it is also for sale in my Etsy shop where you can find other patterns by myself and Karen walker, as well as luscious hand dyed yarn and fibers. Questions and pattern support and request for paper copy are available at NoTwoSnowflakes@aol.com
