XT011709

The pattern is available in English and German. Upon purchase you will receive two separate files, one in each language.
Made in collaboration with Skudderia.

Beautiful, lightweight cardigan with textured yoke, worked seamlessly from top down.
The work begins with the neck ribbing and then continues with three increase rounds. The textured section is worked next, followed by another increase round. The bottom of the yoke is shaped with short rows to make the front of the cardigan to sit lower than the back.
The sleeve stitches are then placed on hold. The body is worked towards the hem and finished off with a ribbing. Stitches for the sleeves are then placed on needles and sleeves are worked in the round towards the cuffs and finished off with a ribbing.
The lace pattern has both charted and written instructions. The pattern also includes a photo tutorial for German short rows.
