Trellis Lace Cardigan

This sweater is incredibly comfortable and a pleasure to wear. Wear it over its matching short sleeve pullover (Pattern 101) or over a contrasting color that will show through the lace pattern.

This cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom to the armholes, then the fronts and back are worked separately to the shoulders. The sleeves are worked flat from the bottom up, then sewn in.

The patterns are presented in written format only.
