Every little girl needs a few cover-up cardies. Carousel, the little sister to Summer Carnival, is reminiscent of ferris wheels, carousels and all things fun and festive.
Knit top-down and seamlessly, this lightweight cardigan is reminiscent of a cropped 50s style bolero perfect for slipping over a sundress.The construction is a slight twist on the traditional raglan cardigan. It features a simple but cute circular lace motif in the brooch position and running down one side of the body. This circular motif evokes images of katherine wheels and ferris wheels, such distinctly Summer memories.
Note: the side lace panel is only worked on the larger sizes.
Both charts and instructions are included for the lace sections.
The sample shown was knit in Wendy Dennis Polwarth/Silk 5 ply, shade Teal.
