Mountain View Cardigan
Help for Haiti: From January 16 to Feb 5, 50% of my sales from this pattern will go towards MSF/Doctors without Borders. The firm my husband works for will make a matching contribution. I’ll announce the total amount donated at the end of the time period.
Euroflax Sportweight Linen 100 g/270 yds - 5 (5, 6, 6, 7, 8, 8)
LL’s Shepherd Sock 57 g/215 yds - 6 (6, 7, 8, 8, 9, 10)
This lightweight cardigan is knit at a sport weight gauge with either a sport weight yarn or a fingering weight yarn on larger needles for an open, drapey fabric.
Construction is in pieces, but can be easily converted to in one-piece knitting.
No shaping in lace is required. The back panel sits in a background of stockinette and the lace sleeve cuff is knit even without shaping for a slight bell-like effect. Stitches are then picked up from the long edge of the cuff for the rest of the sleeve.
