This short sleeve summer cardigan has an all over Diamond Bobble Lace Stitch. The stitch pattern appears in text and chart formats. The sleeve is a classic set in version. The body is worked bottom up in a single piece to the underarms, then divided to work to the shoulders. The edging on the fronts and neckline is picked up on a circular needle and knitted out. Buttonholes are created between the edge of the garment and the band. The sample is knit in a hand dyed wool and silk blend yarn, which creates a fabric with lots of drape. It is shown with 5 cm (2 inches) of positive ease.

Suggested Yarn Substitutions
