Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl
  • Basic knowledge in knitting lace patterns
  • Standard increases and decreases

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.
