Originally designed for my sister’s wedding, this delicate cardigan combines Marriage Lines lace with the bobble-rich Nosegay pattern to create a feminine sweater suitable for any occasion. Waist shaping, ¾ sleeves, and lacy raglan lines highlight its femininity and make it suitable for year-round wear.

The original sweater was knit for my sister in Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Sock in the perfect-for-my-sis green, Fells Point. You can see the beautiful bride on my project page here.

What you’ll love about Mariage Soeurs:

  • Delicate stitch patterns with lots of texture (lace, twisted stitches, bobbles!)
  • Thoughtful waist shaping increases and decreases the fabric right where you want your curves for a very flattering sweater
  • Lacy decreases for the raglan lines add an extra, pretty element to this feminine cardigan
  • Worked from the bottom up with the body in one piece, the sleeves are also worked flat (and seamed up at the end - that way the body and sleeve gauge match), then sleeves and body are joined on one long, circular needle before stitches are decreased away to create the raglan yoke
  • Stitch patterns are provided in both written and charted formats
  • Button bands knitted as you go mean there is very little finishing work: weave together the underarms, seam the sleeves, and sew buttons over the buttonholes (yes, you make buttonholes on both bands, so you will know exactly where those buttons belong) on your preferred side
