The Rian Cardigan was made to match the Rian Cowl and Rian Hat. She features delicate lace and cable panels adorning the sleeves, fronts and back of the cardigan.

Knitted bottom up in pieces with simple garter cuff and hem, eyelet lace buttonhole band and neckband, ribbed buttonband and a little waist shaping (optional).
Rian is worked flat and seamed. You could make her bottom-up and without seams if you wish, but in such a drapey yarn, I prefer the stability and structure of a seamed garment.

Rian is designed to be worn with slight negative ease to 2 inches of positive ease depending on your choice of fit. Finished measurements and a detailed schematic are included to enable you to choose the best size.

Sizes: 28 1/2, 32 1/2, 36 1/2, 40 1/2, 44 1/2, 46 1/2, 50 1/2, 56 1/2 inch chest.
Yardage: 966, 1104, 1200, 1380, 1650, 1794, 1794, 1932
Tension/Gauge: 20sts x 32 rows in stocking stitch with larger needles. Lace panel measures 4 3/4 inches wide.
Buttons: 9-14 buttons, can be placed where you wish as the buttonholes are part of the eyelet lace buttonhole band, giving you maximum choice.

You should have an update and the final file is called Rian Cardigan Master V1 and should be in your Ravelry Library.
