Made in a light, laceweight yarn for a gossamer-like effect, this cardi is perfect for cool evenings or the AC. Wear it open, or close it with the addition of a button and crocheted-loop closure. Worked from the back of the neck and shoulders-down, short row shaping is used to help it curve around the neck and shoulders without flipping. The set-in sleeves of the cardigan are created simultaneously with the upper bodice in a technique originally described by Barbara Walker (photo tutorial included), and the garter-lace edging is worked right along with the bodice. Once the garment is worked below the underarm, most of the sts are put on hold while some of the front sts are worked to the full length of the bodice. Sts are then picked up from the selvage edge of the garment and worked along with the sts that you’d originally put on hold. I’ve included a detailed photo tutorial to help you along and allow you to check your work as you go.
Challenging pattern but I'm enjoying a totally different way of knitting a cardigan.
