LACE SQUARED CARDIGAN
by boknits

Based on a love for all things geometric. this little cardigan is made with square lace and edged with square holed bands.
It’s lovely little cardigan to put on over a tee on a cool evening or in a chilly air-conditioned office. It’s shaped to the female form and knit with the latest bottom-up, contiguous technique. This ensures a perfect fit around the shoulders. It has a gentle A-line, short sleeves and a scooped neck line.

A-line
in the round

contiguous sleeve/shoulders bottom-up
front and neck bands picked up and knit
