Dewdrop cardi is a delicate, lightweight cardigan, ideal for those fresh summer mornings (or evenings). Worked top-down and completely seamless, this cropped cardigan in lace weight avers to be a quick, easy knit with some very exciting elements like 'dropping stitches'(we like to live dangerously. The dropped stitches accentuate and flatter the waist and the easy lace edgings are finished by some dewdrop shaped beads (optional). The cardigan is finished by an I-cord edging at the fronts and neck and 1 buttonhole worked in the I-cord.

I am a graphic designer with a weakness for everything that's handmade, especially textile- and yarnrelated. I have always been designing all kinds of things : clothes, knitwear, small furniture ... I like to experiment with shapes and textures, always searching for a different approach of constructing a garment. What appeals to me most is using common stitches (knit and purl) and simple, well-thought, clean shapes to make up a design. Most of my patterns are written with charts, illustrations and diagrams (graphics, he he ;).
