Feminine but unpretentious Moonshine is designed to look fabulous in a wide variety of yarns. Pick a slinky silk, a crisp linen, a grippy wool or create your own unique blend by holding different yarns together.

Moonshine is knitted seamlessly from the bottom up. Shaping and structuring of the cardigan is achieved by using different needle sizes. The body -with integrated pockets- and the sleeves are worked up to the underarms and then joined. The flattering yoke has an outstanding fit and is based on a variation of the seamless hybrid yoke developed by Elizabeth Zimmerman.

The lace pattern is charted and written out. Charts for every size are provided for raglan shaping in the lace pattern.

Difficulty: This is an intermediate pattern with some intricate stitches and techniques but they are carefully explained or linked to other resources.

XS (S, M, L, 1X, 2X, 3X)
Finished measurements: bust 90 (104, 113.5, 128, 137, 146.5, 160.5) cm / 35.5 (41, 44.75, 50.25, 54, 57.75, 63.25)”.

Moonshine is designed to skim the high hip (2.5-5 cm / 1-2 inch positive ease), with 10-12.5 cm / 4-5” of positive ease around the bust to prevent gaping.
The lace part of the cardigan is easily blocked to personal measurements or preferences.
