Summer Fairy is an airy summer cardigan with waved lace panel on the back.
It comes with two lengths – Choose the one that matches your style!

It is worked from the top down seamlessly. The fronts and back are first worked back and forth separately with short-row shoulder shaping. They are joined at the underarm, and the lower body is knitted in one piece to the hem in an A-line silhouette. Front and neck band is worked in garter st once the body is finished, and armhole edging is worked in the round in 1×1 rib.

This pattern is written in English, and has been professionally edited and test knitted.
