What was your inspiration?
Wonderful little addition to any wardrobe, this cardigan is a perfect layering piece. The delicate lace stitch with the large attached ribbed collar makes this cardigan look sophisticated without being stuffy :-)
I designed the Lacey Dream to showcase the beautiful Yak and Bamboo blend yarn by Bijou Basin Ranch while running the yarn tasting booth at Vogue Knitting Live. Many of you asked me for the pattern so here it is ;-) I hope you enjoy yours as much as I LOVE mine!
Available in a wide range of sizes, includes stitch pattern chart and schematic.
What are you most proud of?
I love that it is super simple without losing the style. This has been one of my most popular sweater patterns and people will purchase the Bijou Basin Ranch yarn to make it since it doesn't take too much! It is SO WORTH IT!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Block your swatch because when you block lace it opens up and gets bigger. If you don't plan for that your piece will be too big when you are finished.
