I love this feminine cardigan, with its body-hugging lace rib and wide neck opening and collar! The body is worked in one piece, and the sleeves are piced up and worked down--no seaming! And you have your choice of short or long sleeves, so it's great for all seasons.
The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 5.5 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.
24 sts and 30 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Double Eyelet Rib
26 sts and 33 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Rib Pattern
At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
