Like armerias seedling nested in rocks, a light and sweet cardigan to enjoy a day in the open air… 

More details


This pattern is worked seamlessly from the top down, starting from neck. The neck part is shaped using short rows, right after the border. Raglan increases are placed on both sides of the lace pattern. Once the yoke is finishedyou will knit the bottom of the body and the sleeves in the round. If you don’t feel comfortable knitting in the round on small diametersthere is another option where you'll work the sleeves flat after knitting the yoke.


This pattern will suit medium knitters. The first part involves short rows, increases, lace pattern and buttonholes placement and requires a bit of focus. The rest of the cardigan is a perfect match for meditative and mindless knitting :)
