Pattern Description:

Hit your fashion stride with this beautiful cardigan which combines an eye-catching and innovative crossed stitch trim with the simplicity of stockinette. You'll love learning the fascinating technique for lattice lace used for the trims, which are worked separately. The body and sleeves are then cleverly worked by picking up stitches from the hems then finished with a simple and sweet eyelet neck trim. Make it au courant by experimenting with color blocking or timeless and elegant by using a single color.
