Ripple Lake is a gorgeous cardigan adorned with the most beautiful textured lace patterns.
It has an open front and short sleeves, which make it perfect for transitioning into Spring or into Autumn. The front is slightly shorter than the back, for a modern and flattering fit. It’s the perfect cardigan to wear over dresses, blouses and skirts… and also (of course) a plain t-shirt and jeans ❤️

The construction is so much fun, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! It is worked in two halves (left and right) that grow sideways and meet at the centre back creating a stunning box pleat (there’s a video tutorial for that part of the pattern).
I have included schematics throughout the pattern to help you identify which part you are working on.
I am so proud of this one!
