This is nothing but a plain raglan cardigan pattern. No fancy details, no extraordinary design features. Two different kinds of raglan decreases to make an interesting ridge and a well shaped neck, that’s all. But I’d like to think this is THE pattern I will return to whenever I feel the need of another cardigan! And you too, of course :)
The lace weight yarn knit on this gauge creates a fabric which is breezy and light as a feather, yet the firm ribbing on small needles keeps it all together! Using heavier yarn will give you a tighter fabric, the pattern will work as long as you get gauge!
