I was trying to wait until I had this pattern ready to sell before I posted it on my blog.Â However I was never very good about waiting to unwrap presents so I just couldn’t stop myself putting it up!Â Torya has just finished test knitting it for me and I just love how it turned out for her.Â She will have some photos of it modelled later which I’ll post as well.
I knit this is Cascade ‘Sierra’ which is 80% Pima Cotton and 20% wool.Â It feels like knitting in cotton but has more memory.
I have dreamed about this pattern for many months (may even be a year!).Â I was trying to figure out how to combine a cabled leaf motif in lace.Â By working the borders in wide ribbing I think that the cardigan becomes more wearable than if it was entirely of lace.
Let me know what you think!
I hope to have this tech edited at the end of the month so should have it for sale by May.Â For anyone that likes top down, this is knit from the top with raglan shoulder seams, so easy to construct once you get the lace pattern set -up.
