Hira means diamond in Sanskrit and that is what this cardigan reminds me of. The lattice work on the collar makes a pretty maze and gives a feminine look to the cardigan. Keep the fronts open and wear it for summer or when the air turns slightly cold. Work the lattice pattern with beads to jazz up the cardigan and wear it for your next party.
Quilted Lattice Stitch pattern is available as a chart and written instructions.
21 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch
I am a programmer by day and a knitting designer by night. Even though the sweater days are so few in Bangalore, I still knit and design knitwear with the hope of living in a colder city sometime.
I blog about my knitting and designing adventures on my blog: http://affiknity.com
