A lovely lace collar and insert detail, makes this a most delicate cardigan. Although my most recent model is knit in 3 colors, a solid color works just as well. I also used Cascade Sport a yarn that has a variety of colors and is easy to purchase.

I reworded and reworked this design, one of my most popular, so that anyone can knit it up. Knit from the top down to the bottom rib. The sweater is Seamlessly Simple. No seams to sew, just weave in a few pieces of yarn when complete. All my designs are written for the new knitter. This pattern has easy to follow, step by step instructions. Remember my Motto; “Seamlessly Simple”.

Skill level: Beginner/Intermediate

Skills to know or learn: knit, purl, bind off, knitting in the round, knitted cast-on, Knit into front and Back and Make 1open stitch, Yarn Over.

The stitch (patterns) you will use are lace pattern stitch, ribbing and stockinette.

All my patterns have a detailed technique section (beginning Page 10). These pages include suggested links to video instructions, by instructors I highly recommend, if not my own videos.

If you have any questions contact me. I’m always happy to answer any question you may have. Subject line: Sophia
