PATTERN
Joyce is a very flattering short sleeve cardigan. It becomes a favorite with those who have knit it, especially in a soft bulky yarn. The shaping is the results of working short rows, which are clearly explained in the instructions and interesting to work. A pretty brooch is used at the neck to close. Included in the easy to follow pattern:
• Schematics
• Separate tracking sheets for each size
• Diagrams and full explanations for techniques
• A link for substitute yarn
• A pattern helpline
