(6) Name: 'Knitting : Watershed

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting lace

Pattern Description:

If you're anything like me, your summer wardrobe just begs to be worn when the climate doesn't exactly suit sundresses and lacey tanks.

Enter Watershed, a small lacey cardigan with cap sleeves; designed to be worn open and perfect for layering over lightweight frocks.

Watershed is knit from the bottom edging up, with no seaming. Because of the small amounts of yardage, it's the ideal pattern for making the most of that preciously perfect yarn.
