As implied by the name "Hitofude", meaning a single brush stroke in Japanese, this open front cardigan with an all-over lace pattern is worked in one "yarn stroke" - a continuous strand without cutting the yarn.
The yarn stroke starts from the upper body and sleeves which worked together in a rectangular piece, then moves to the lower body, where the lace pattern increases evenly, creating a gentle drape.
Refer to the schematic on pattern page 5 before selecting a size. Note that the garment fits with very little ease across the back and around the upper arms.
The pattern is available in English and Japanese.
