This lace bottom-up cardigan is sure to please with its almost seamless construction. The only sewing involves the shoulders and sleeves. Garter stitch, stockinette stitch and lace alternate as “stripes” instead of using other colorways. The instructions state that 3.5-4.0 mm needles are required in order to achieve gauge for the different fabrics.
