backyard bash cardigan

from Slipknot Designs
(6) Name: 'Knitting : backyard bash cardigan
backyard bash cardigan

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic lace knitting skills

Pattern Description:

You will need two tubes of size 6 beads for this jacket and a crochet hook small enough to fit through the hole of the beads. There is no way to string the beads on and then knit the pattern. They will HAVE to be put in with a crochet hook!

We are trying something new! To make it easier, all sizes have their own instructions all together
instead of giving numbers in brackets. (it irritates me and I always ALWAYS at least get a wrong
number once). It is easy to just pick the pages you need for your size in your printing screen and
only print those, along with the top page and the key. You get all sizes, but you only have to print
the one you need and only have the numbers pertaining to your project!
