This lightweight cardigan is a perfect cover up for autumn . The combination of lace and cables makes it an interesting knit and the thumb holes add a fun, modern element.

Sofia is worked in one piece from the hem to the underarms, then worked separately for the fronts and back. Neck and armhole shaping is worked at the same time. Shoulders are joined using three-needle bind off, and sleeves picked up from the underarms with short rows and worked down the cuffs. A button band is picked up from the fronts and back neck, with buttonholes placed using one-row buttonholes. Pockets are worked separately and sewn on to the fronts after completion.
