Pattern Description:

Ladies in Downton Abbey, a popular television series set on the fictional estate of Downton Abbey in the North Riding of Yorkshire , England, are often dressed in delicate, feminine, and classic wardrobe.

Inspired by the character, Lady Mary, whose strong-willed appearance shells the hopelessly romantic heart, I designed a lightweight cardigan appropriate for spring.

Knitted from top down, seamlessly in the round, the yoke is knitted first and then the sleeves are held until the body is completed. The sleeves are finished with shaping and lace section for dramatic effect.


24 sts and 32 rows = 4″ square in St st. with Main Body needle
