Pattern Description:

Designed by Kate Oates.

Alice's Tea Party is a delicate cardigan inspired by the latest rendition of Alice in Wonderland; where Alice maintains both her classic elegance, and a little bit of edge as she makes her way through Wonderland. The cardigan features a diagonal button closure and lace trim for that bit of whimsy.

The sweater is worked in one piece from the bottom up with shaping on either side; sleeves are knit in the round and attached seamlessly, raglan style. The bold colors and stitch definition of Bijou Bliss (yak and cormo) make the knitting a pleasure and the finished garment stunning. This project is geared toward an intermediate level knitter who is comfortable working lace patterns and with basic shaping techniques.
