The Fallen Leaves Cardigan is worked top down with raglan increases, all in one piece. It is worked back and forth. It has a double collar, double button row and double ribbings. The yoke is worked with german short rows to add some definition to the shaping of the collar. There is a leaf lace pattern on the sleeves, which makes this piece one of a kind.

This Cardigan is intended to be worn fitting, meaning the measurments match the bust size. For example: a bust size of 90cm corresponds to Size S with 90cm circumference. Depending on what yarn you’re using it will grow with washing and also with wearing it. So it is crucial to knit a swatch and wash it to see how your yarn reacts (if it grows with washing or not).
