Summer Festival is about capturing the essence of Summer. Throw it on for comfort and warmth at your favourite music festival. Then relive the memory every time you slip it on for the rest of the year.
Knit top-down and seamlessly, this lightweight and easy to wear cardigan is the perfect long lounging cardie for slinging on over anything! Deep pockets and back feature lace make it eye-catching yet casual.
The construction is a slight twist on the traditional raglan cardigan. It features a simple but cute circular lace motif in the brooch position and running down one side and the back of the body. This circular motif evokes images of katherine wheels and ferris wheels, such distinctly Summer memories.
Both charts and instructions are included for the lace sections.
NOTE: Summer Festival is part of a series of four related patterns available separately or as part of an ebook.
The related pattern Summer Carnival is a cropped version of this cardie, much like a 50s bolero. The raglan shaping, bodice and sleeves are worked slightly differently in each of these patterns to cater for the different fit and ease in the different style of sleeves.
