A lovely cardigan with a beautiful lace yoke and pockets! The sample has just one button at the top but there are instructions in the pattern to have buttons all down the front. It has a unique construction where the sleeves emerge from the the lace pattern and body increases are added through out the yoke. Come along on the adventure and wrap yourself in warmth!
Shibui Staccato and Silk Cloud were used for the sample; so lovely and soft with a wondrous drape.

Notes:
Hold 1 strand of each yarn together throughout pattern. A DK weight yarn may be used in place of the two modeled yarns.
The cardigan is designed with positive ease; choose size according to the amount of ease desired.
The garment is worked top down beginning with a rounded yoke, then double sleeve increases are worked to shape the remainder of the yoke. Body increases are spaced evenly around, rather than being worked at front and back shoulders.
The front bands are worked as part of the body of the cardigan. There is only one button at the top. If buttons down the whole front are desired work Chart 1 through st # 20, pm, then work Buttonhole chart to end. Do not cast on the 5 sts after Chart 1 is completed. The stitch counts for the Right Front will be 5 sts less then listed in the pattern. The hole created by the cables naturally form the buttonhole.
There are lots of size divisions in the yoke. I would recommend highlighting the sections that pertain to your size.
After the sleeves and body are divided, continuing back increases create A-line shaping.
The sleeve length and shaping can be easily adjusted. They are worked straight and then decreased just above the cuff. If a tapered sleeve is desired, work paired decreases spaced evenly along the length of the sleeve.
