This pattern was first published as a free supplement to The Knitter, Issue 25, from the end of October 2010. The supplement says that Lily France was 12 years old when she designed Wray.
It’s a cardigan with short, slightly puffed and pleated sleeves, top-down construction, and buttoned only from neck to bust with 5 buttons. It is knitted on circular needles.
It was originally designed for a cobweb weight yarn which is no longer available, so five alternative cobweb and laceweight yarns are recommended:
Artist’s Palette Yarns Damsel (1-2 skeins);
Fyberspates Nef Lace (1-2 skeins);
Jade Sapphire Lacy (2-3 balls);
Malabrigo Lace (2-4 skeins);
Manos del Uruguay Lace (2-4 skeins).
There is no stitch diagram or charts, but there is a step-by-step photo-guide on working pleats for the sleeves.
Back issues of issue 25 are now sold out: pattern will be available to download via ravelry from spring 2011.
