Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

Raspberries is my interpretation of a classic cardigan with a modern twist.

It has a classic deep V-Neck opening, raglan sleeves and gently shaped waist for a very comfortable and flattering fit. The beautiful lace and mock-cable pattern runs on the fronts, back and sides of the cardigan for a refined look with very little effort. The sleeves are gently tappered to flatter the silhouette.

Raspberries is worked completely seamlessly from the top down with raglan shaping for the sleeves. The lace and mock-cable are charted and the rest of the instructions are written out.
