Zest is a fitted cardigan worked seamlessly from the bottom-up with an allover lace pattern. A panel of cables along the back at the waistline highlights the natural shaping of the waist and adds an interesting detail. The yoke uses raglan-style decreases, which are fully charted to not disrupt the lace pattern. Pattern includes both charts and written instructions, and the cardigan is sized from 30”/76 cm to 60”/152 cm bust with sizing increments every 2”/5 cm to help achieve the best fit possible.

Pattern difficulty: Intermediate. Pattern uses increases, decreases, following a lace pattern over a large number of stitches, cables, and knitting in the round.

The cardigan pictured in orange was worked in size 30” / 76 cm with 1” / 2.5 cm of negative ease and is intended to be worn as an open cardigan. The one pictured in yellow was worked in size 32” / 81 cm with about 1” / 2.5 cm of positive ease and may be buttoned in the front.
