Gauge 37 sts and 39 rows = 4” in lace patt, relaxed; 28 sts and 42 rows = 4” in lace patt, stretched.

A leaf lace corrugated with purl ribs makes a fabric that hugs curves. The Rheya Cardigan focuses on fit throughout—the set-in sleeve is worked in the round, then divided for the cap. Narrow shoulders and waist-shaping complete the tailored look.
