Pattern Description:

PATTERN (PDF) for a short cardigan with lace knitting pattern in the bottom of the body and sleeves.

The lace leaf pattern creates a zig zag bottom ending both for the body and the sleeves. The V-shape of the body, together with the large V-shape of the neckline create a high contrast with the A-shape of the sleeves. The colors of the yarn mix beautifully when the reverse stocking stitch is used and make single color "stains" here and there. A thin cable cord is used for the neckline.

Wear it with a single color shirt or tight single color sweater and jeans
Prefer bright multicolor yarn to make this cardigan.
I used multicolor: white - turquoise - blue, 70% mohair - 30% acrylic light yarn.

Enjoy knitting and wearing it!

E: ... and I'm Emmy. Since I'm the elder sister, I'll start first presenting my younger sister's work.

R: Fine! But I'll break in whenever I feel like it!

E: Ok! One morning some time ago, Rosa woke up and felt inspired to make whimsical jewelry! Little by little she added different materials and created impressive combinations.
