This pattern is the fingeringweight version of the Prescott DK cardigan. Worked from the shoulders-down, the set-in sleeves of the Prescott cardigan are created simultaneously with the upper bodice in a technique originally described by Barbara Walker. A photo tutorial is included with the pattern to illustrate the technique. The button plackets are worked along with the bodice, and allow you to place as many or as few buttons wherever you like without having to plan ahead. Shaping to the waist is accomplished along princess “seams” to allow for maximum customization. There is very little hip shaping, however, since the floral lace hem stretches to fit. See “Some Thoughts About Fit” section of the pattern for advice on how to adapt the shaping to your own fit preferences.
