Maree is a sweet short sleeved cardigan that is perfect for layering any season of the year.

It is the last cardigan in my sister series, each of these cardies have been named for the middle name of each my sisters.

The bodice is constructed using a hybrid circular yoke construction. This is an unusual take on the traditional circular yoke, with the yoke forming more of a half circle over the bodice rather than a true circle.

The garter stitch yoke leads into a row of eyelets that allow the wearer to create a fastening if desired.

The body of the cardigan is knit in an easy to remember lace pattern, complete with pockets worked into the lace pattern.

Pattern includes both written and charted instructions.
