Camas Lily is a fitted cardigan with cropped sleeves worked seamlessly from the bottom-up with an undulating twin leaf motif. Increases and decreases are worked on either side of the leaf motif to give the appearance that it is undulating across the front of the cardigan; starting from the side, it undulates towards the center front and then back to the side and across the shoulder during the raglan yoke shaping. Pattern is sized from 30” / 76 cm to 60” / 152 cm bust, with sizing increments as appropriate and waist shaping to ensure a flattering fit.
Pattern Difficulty: Intermediate. Pattern uses lace knitting, knitting in the round, increasing and decreasing, and grafting using Kitchener Stitch.
