This drop shoulder cardi is oversized and designed for any DK yarn.

Great cardigan for all types of weather, dependent only on your choice of yarn.

Lace panels on sleeves and at high waist have a gentle nipped in look creating a subtle flare depending on the softness of your yarn.

Three distinct sizes are offered across the bodies, while you can choose the nearest fitted sleeve size within each body size;
Teens: 1 size sleeve
Ladies Small to Medium: use the small or medium sleeve
Ladies Large to XL: use the large or x-large sleeve.
Detailed measurements are given to choose the options.

Garment is worked Bottom up starting with the bodices, then Top Down for the body, lacework to the hemline. Sleeves are worked Top Down.

Construction is easy and lace work not very difficult with repeats quickly worked back and forth across width of work. Both 4.5 & 4mm (90cm long) circular needles are required.

Notes on Needles/ gauge
Whilst the body is worked on a 4.5mm needle for maximum drape, all the lace is worked on a smaller needle.
Gauge works out to be different on each section of garment and with different DK yarns, and as this design is oversized the gauge is not important.
