Here is a cozy hooded cardigan perfect for walking along the seawall or window shopping in Yaletown on a lazy Sunday morning. Wear it as a coat when the weather’s good, layer it under rain gear when it’s not, or just wrap yourself up in it while you sit inside by the fire.
The allover pinecone lace looks impressive but is easy to memorize. There’s no complicated shaping to worry about (the body and sleeves of the sweater are all simple rectangles), so you can easily adjust the length and sleeve circumference to fit your own body. If you find the hood daunting, you could substitute a plain ribbed collar instead.
This is a somewhat heavy garment, so the body and sleeves are worked flat and seamed together to give it structure. Ribbing at the front edges flows into a shawl collar which is then worked into a hood that’s grafted together at the centre to form a flattering frame for your face. The chunky yarn works up quickly; you’ll be be done before you know it!
Finished measurements
Chest / hips: 30.5 40, 50

Allow 3-6” (or more) positive ease for best results.

The last sentence of the HOOD section should read:

Next RS row: work in patt to 1st marker. Sl marker, m1r, work lace pattern to second marker, m1l, slip marker, work in pattern to end. Work WS even. Repeat these 2 rows 4 more times, then work increases every 4th row 13 times (107, 137, 137) sts.

$1 from the sale of each pattern will be donated to the Stung Teng Women’s Development Centre in Cambodia, which offers opportunities to improve local women’s living standards through education, vocational training and employment.
