(6) Name: 'Knitting : Lavanda

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, cable, increase, decrease

Pattern Description:

Lavanda is my third design in the "Spice Girls" series. It started as a request by a very dear and special friend, Monika. The request was to create a girly cardigan that had specific features in it. We also planned to have this design as a Valentine gift knit for our girls, thus I also wanted to add a bit of romantic flair as a final touch.

The cardigan is worked as a top down raglan and is completely seamless. Several textures are combined in this design to give the cardigan a girly, elegant, and romantic look; and as a part of the "Spice Girls" series, Lavanda has a unique spice of its own.

Detailed instructions are given for how to invisibly incorporate raglan increases into the bodice rib pattern.
There are instructions for a plain neckband, collar or hood. Sleeves may be short or long. Pockets are optional.
Links for tutorials for the Afterthought Pocket and Seed Stitch Grafting are included into the pattern.

Monika, this one is for you! Thank you for inspiring me with your ideas!
