Swathe yourself in luxury with this featherlight and lacy cardigan. Knit from an airy, laceweight mohair, this beautiful piece glides upwards from a gently scalloped peplum. Wrap your back in the gorgeous Eyelet Leaves pattern that looks deceptively complicated, while the stockinette front allows the flowing peplum to shine. The Eyelet Leaves echo on the sleeves as the pattern forms an elongating scallop over the hand, giving way to a stockinette arm, finished with a lace repeat at the sleeve cap. Pull it together with twisted stitch ties for a piece you’ll wear over and over.

Gauge

4.5 sts/in and 6.5 rows/in = 18 sts/4” and 26 rows/4” in Diagonal Crossed Knots

Note re Eyelet Leaves It is difficult to measure and get an accurate stitch count because of the changing orientation of the stitches. The stitch gauge was taken by measuring the entire width of the 37 stitch pattern and dividing by the width. The row count is taken at the center, most vertical part, of the pattern.
