Lavanda is my third design in the “Spice Girls” series. It started as a request by a very dear and special friend, Monika.

Monika, this one is for you!
Thank you for inspiring me with your ideas!

We love it, and I am sure that this cardigan will become a favourite clothing piece for your girls as well.

The cardigan is worked as a top down raglan and is completely seamless. Several textures are combined in this design to give the cardigan a girly, elegant, and romantic look; and as a part of the “Spice Girls” series, Lavanda has a unique spice of its own.

Detailed instructions are given for how to invisibly incorporate raglan increases into the bodice rib pattern.

Links for tutorials for the Afterthought Pocket and Seed Stitch Grafting are included into the pattern, and were kindly provided by Janet and Monika.
