Pattern Notes (download pattern for full information on sizes, yarn required, etc.):
This stylish design in three sizes is worked back and forth in 5 pieces and may be made to finish just on the hips (36 cm / 14 inches) or longer (43 cm / 17 inches), whichever you prefer. The welts, cuffs neck and front bands are in lie-flat moss stitch.
This cardigan is designed with positive ease as a loose jacket, so the neck is quite wide to accommodate collars, etc. The buttons may be omitted, in which case the button holes can also be omitted from the Buttonhole Band.
The sleeves may be extended to three-quarter length if desired, when additional yarn will be needed.
The design includes instructions for a yoke in Moss Stitch worked at the Back only, with options to include at the fronts or to omit from the Back – omitting the yoke(s) will make for a speedier project but will require additional lace-weight yarn.
Carry the yarn not being used up the side of the work, being careful not to pull it too tightly, which will reduce the stretchiness of the fabric (and require more yarn and time!)
