A cute cropped cardigan with a pretty lace yoke. Worked with raglan sleeves from the top down, this is a quick to knit, but lightweight, warm weather cardigan. Available in 9 sizes to fit bust from 70-155cm/28” to 62”. Lace patterns have both charts and written instructions, we include both metric and imperial measurements, and most importantly – it’s totally seamless! Please note that the pattern is written with a little positive ease, the cardigan pictured is a size 80-85 cm/32-34” on a model with a 90 cm/36” bust for a closer fit.

Aonach is Scottish Gaelic for a mountain ridge, the zigzag edge of the lace yoke is meant to represent a serrated ridge in a mountainous landscape.
