My sister said, “it looks like blue corals” when she first saw the photo of the cardigan. The lace does look like corals, does it? It is made up with multiples of 4 stitches, the twisted stitches give a fun movement and a great texture.

This cardigan starts off at the back of the collar. Stitches are picked up for the sleeves and the back with raglan shoulders, and worked all in one piece seamlessly. The lace on the collar continues to the front neck and gradually increased on the front body.

Yowza from Miss babs is listed worsted, and is often substituted for DK weight yarn. I used colour “Forever”, it is serene ocean blue, just gorgeous.

I was again fortunate enough to have great testers. They are all experienced, attentive and dependable. And I am totally in love with their Ambitious corals. The pattern has been carefully revised and completed considering their suggestions, thoughts and ideas. It includes written instructions and charts.
