The dainty blossoms of *dicentra*--bleeding heart--droop from lacy leaves against a deep, mysteriously heathered green. This seamless yoke cardigan is knit in the round, with steek for the front opening. Full instructions for securing and cutting the steek are included in the pattern. Waist shaping and 3/4-length sleeves emphasize the feminine look of this sweater, and its light weight makes it an all-season garment.
Six colors are used in this design: 1400 Mirry Dancers is the main color, and 3 shades of pink plus 2 shades of green are used to knit the asymmetrical design at hips and yoke.
Knitting this sweater is quite straightforward. There are two challenges: the steek (instructions are included in the pattern) and placing the buttonholes (instructions and a worksheet are included).
Other materials needed: In addition to the standard knitting supplies, you will need 7 5/8" or 3/4" buttons.
