Traditional lace stitches can be used to create garments appropriate for the cold seasons when worked in heavier yarns, such as this worsted weight BNW yarn. To eliminate the airiness of lace for a cozy garment, the yarn overs are worked through the back loops, which creates an interesting embossed look on the right side of the garment.

This cardigan in 8 sizes (XS, S, M, L, 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X), is designed to be worn with positive ease for a comfortable, relaxed fit. All pieces are knit flat, bottom up and seamed to finish. It features front, back, and sleeve panels of embossed leaf stitch, side seam pockets, and a standing ribbed collar that may be buttoned to the top. Simple rib anchors the hem and cuffs of the stockinette body to highlight the lace panels and create a smooth silhouette.

Work in a springy yarn for best stitch definition. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement. Shown here in size S cardigan in Bare Naked Wools Confection Worsted, color Milk Chocolate.
