Cardigan "Davina" Pattern

Pattern Details






Women, Girls



Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl
  • Basic knowledge in knitting lace patterns

Pattern Description:

I couldn't wait until spring begins - "Davina" is my first spring design in 2014.

"Davina" is a long V-neck cardigan with lace elements at pockets and sleeves. The pocket lining is knitted in a contrasting color (on photos dark brown) - but feel free to use same color as for cardigan.

A beautiful cardigan for spring and summer when knitting it with linen or cotton (or both - as done here). But it will look wonderful if you use merino or cashmere for cold winter days.

In my everyday life I work as a web and graphic designer. After work (and in nearly every free minute) I fetch my needles and start knitting. One day when my family and friends where completely overwhelmed with knitted items, I decided to offer my self-designed models and the corresponding patterns online. That was a few years ago - and I'm very happy that it succeeded so well.
