Constructed seamlessly from the top down and shaped along raglan lines, a beautiful chandelier lace pattern in the main body is combined with a smaller lace pattern along the center of each sleeve. Stitches are picked up along the center front selvedges and the bands are worked perpendicular to the body.

This classic cardigan showcases how to position a pattern that repeats over a relatively large number of stitches in the body. Alongside the standard instructions, you can also learn how to adjust the number of stitches to achieve the desired bust circumference for a perfectly customized fit.
