Reagan is a lovely wrap cardigan you can throw on over casual outfits or your favorite dress. Feminine lace pattern combined with long sleeves and the different styling options (second image shows the cardigan worn upside down) will make Reagan your everyday companion.
The upper shoulder/back part is worked sideways back and forth in plain Stockinette stitch from a provisional cast-on. Stitches are then joined to knit the first sleeve in the round down to the cuff. Then the second sleeve is worked from the provisional cast-on in the round down to the cuff. After that body stitches are picked up from the long side of the back piece to work the fronts and lower back in Harebell Lace to the final length. I-cord finishing is worked last.
