Larkspur is a laceweight cardigan worked seamlessly from the bottom-up in garter stitch, with dolman style sleeves worked simultaneously with the body, a starflower lace pattern to highlight the waistline, and slight gathers at the neckline. Pattern is sized from 30” / 76 cm bust to 60” / 152 cm bust, with sizing increments every 2” / 5 cm to ensure a flattering fit.

Pattern Difficulty: Intermediate. Pattern requires following a lace stitch pattern over a large number of stitches, increases and decreases, using a cable needle, and grafting using Kitchener Stitch.
