This sweet lacy cardigan is worked flat in one piece to the underarm. The sleeves are worked in the round and then all pieces are joined to work to the neckline with raglan sleeve seams. Due to the nature of the stitch pattern, instructions are written out completely for each size. The pattern includes charts as well as written instructions for the lace. The edging is worked in a contrast color and one skein is needed for each size. The sweater begins and ends with picot edging, and all instructions for these techniques are included in the pattern.

I am a self taught designer, having spent many hours researching and reading about the skills needed to learn clothing design. Having had much experience sewing, gave me a lot of knowledge about how clothing is constructed, which is an essential skill in being able to design. Experience knitting, gave me the tools I needed to master knitting techniques and be able to shape the fabric in the way I want. Learning is an ongoing pastime, there are always new techniques to master. I design clothing for children up to about 10 years and also adults. I have been published in Universal Yarns, Willow Yarns, One Skein Wonders for Babies, as well as various online magazines and self published designs.
