Grace is a light romantic cardigan. The sweater can be worn casually with trousers, as well as with skirts or dresses. For the wonderful lace part, I was inspired by Japanese Knitting Art patterns.
The playful round yoke is the eye-catcher of the jacket and merges into a plain stitched body. The length of the cardigan can be fitted to your own style.
The I-Cord, which also includes the buttonholes, gives the garment the perfect finishing note.

Knitting skills & technique
Intermediate knitting skills; top-down construction, knitting according to lace chart, German short rows, I-Cord, single crochet stitch (US)

General Information for Construction
The cardigan is constructed top-down. One starts in the middle of the front. The sweater is worked back and forth. The neckline shaping is done through a few German Short Rows. Then the Lace pattern is knitted according to the given chart. The chart shows all the necessary increases. Thereafter, raglan increases are worked for a comfortable fitting. Now sleeves and body are separated.
The body is worked in one piece in rows up to your desired length. Afterward, sleeve stitches are taken back onto the needle and finished in rounds. The complete garment is edged with an I-Cord.
