A feminine cropped cardigan with geometric eyelets, Lorem Ipsum is knit seamlessly from the top down, incorporating simple lace with the techniques of raglan sweater knitting. In graphic design, Lorem Ipsum dolor sit amet begins the scrambled Latin text often used as a placeholder, focusing attention on the style elements of a document. Likewise, this easily-memorized, small scale pattern highlights the raglan sleeves and deeply scooped neckline, without competing. The lace is designed to flow without interruption around the cardi, transitioning to a flattering single rib hem, cuffs and neckline. With a simultaneously worked garter button band and minimal finishing, the focus is all on style in this flattering little sweater. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Techniques & Skills Used: raglan construction, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing in pattern, cable CO, backwards loop CO. Stitch patterns are both written and charted, and include instructions for shaping the raglan sleeves in pattern. GAUGE Gauge: 20 st and 32 rows/4" in Eyelet pattern; after steam blocking.
