Here is a sweater for those of you who hate making gauge swatches. It is a long sleeved circular cardigan that can be worn 4 ways. If you wear it one way it is a jacket, turn it over and it is a shrug with a long collar – it is also reversible for a different look from the “inside.”
Work this sweater with larger needles in a summer yarn for a lacey look or smaller needles and a winter yarn for a warmer sweater. Self stripping yarn will accent the pentagon shape while solid yarns will enable the lace to shine.
This pattern is best for knitters who are comfortable knitting lace in the round.
There is another version - See Radiant Cardigan.
