An 'aafil boanny' cardigan with flattering lines and an easy Shetland lace featured at the yoke, hem and cuffs.
'Moch' means moth and 'aafil boanny' very beautiful in Shetland dialect.
This cardigan is worked seamlessly from the bottom up starting with the hem. Sleeves are worked in the rnd separately and then joined to the body at the yoke. The buttonband is worked at the same time as the yoke. Underarm sts are grafted together at the end.
As there are 10 sizes in total in this pattern I chose to write the pattern using a table format. I believe this will allow for easier reading of the pattern and avoid long brackets packed with numbers. When you begin the pattern you will fill in the appropriate numbers from the table for your size. Spaces have been provided next to each bold letter in the pattern for your convenience.
I was prompted to implement this after reading a timely discussion about it on Ysolda’s blog. Thanks Ysolda!
