The pattern involves working lace, incs, decs, and working short rows.
Glam up your wardrobe with this little number! Sequins are easily knit in throughout the fabric with the Disco Lights yarn from Tilli Tomas. The end result is a shimmery, beautiful cardigan that catches the light and everyones compliments!
This is a top-down design featuring lots of pretty detailing. The neckband and fronts are in Garter stitch, a nicely textured background that allows the sequins to sparkle. The front ties are simple Garter stitch bands knit out from the front of the cardigan.
The back is in Stockinette stitch, with a nipped in waist and lace detail.
The bottom of the cardigan is higher in front and curves lower in back for a wonderfully flattering and unique touch.
Sleeves can be left short (see photo on next page) or knit to an elegant bracelet length, with a very open lace panel running down the center.
Knit this beauty using the fancy Tilli Tomas yarn which comes in other glamorous colors like Jade or American Beauty (a rich red with so much depth of color!).
