The lace pattern of Wish Me Luck is based on the traditional Horseshoe lace – hence the name. The alpaca yarn ensures that the cardigan is soft and warm and adds to its simple elegance. Wearing Wish Me Luck, you can make an average day a bit more special – and who knows what more it is capable of with a name like this :)

Skill level

intermediate

Skills used

  • lace
  • decreasing lace (tutorial in the pattern)
  • seaming
  • setting in sleeves
  • charts (written-out version as well)

Construction:

The body is knit in one piece, the sleeves are set-in. The button band is also knit separately and sewn in place because I wanted a wavy edge. Finally, for the neckline you have to pick up and knit the stitches.
