Leaves in Motion
*** Leaves in Motion is a loose-gauge fly-away cardigan, featuring a leaf lace pattern and simple, flattering waist shaping.***
CONSTRUCTION NOTES: Cardigan is worked in one piece, back and forth from the bottom up with easily customizable waist shaping. Back and Fronts are separated at the armholes and worked separately. Shoulders are joined using three-needle cast off. Stitches are picked up around the armholes for the sleeves and worked to the cuffs.
TIPS: The neckline can be made higher or lower by very simply placing the front stitches on a holder at any point after the bust shaping is complete, as desired. Adjust yardage accordingly.
