Cliffridge Cardigan

$8 (PDF DOWNLOAD) 

This pattern is part of VERNAL: Collection of warm weather knitwear book. You can purchase all patterns in this collection as a print book with e-book here.

The delicate lace pattern in combination with 1-by-1 ribbing on both front and back makes this lightweight open front cardigan a definite showstopper. Cliffridge is knit from the bottom up; short rows shape the shoulders and elegant three-quarter sleeves, which are cast on at the underarm and joined along the top with a 3 Needle bind-off.

 

One of my favorite yarns, Miss Babs Yummy 3-ply, works perfectly with Cliffridge – the round shape and bounce of this yarn create a nice drape without compromising the stitch definition.

- German short-rows are used for sleeve cap and shoulder shaping. - Knitters could use any other Short- Row method of their choice.

Knitters may consider placing stitch markers between chart repeats.

- Slip stitches purlwise with yarn in back.

- A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.
