The pattern for this cardigan is now available from my Ravelry store.

To knit the cardigan you start by making the sleeves and upper body which are joined together with a 3-needle bind off at the centre back. Once the upper body has been knitted the lower body stitches are picked up from the upper body sections and knitted down in one piece.

There is a minimal amount of sewing up - the underarm seam - as the sleeves are knitted flat.

3 lace patterns are used in the design. The 3 patterns are variations of each other so can be substituted in different areas if you like to play around with your patterns.
