A cute cropped cardigan with a pretty lace yoke. Worked with a yoked construction from the top down, this is a quick to knit, but lightweight, warm weather cardigan. Available in 8 sizes to fit bust from 75 to 150 cm/30” to 60”. Lace patterns have both charts and written instructions, we include both metric and imperial measurements, and most importantly – it’s totally seamless!

Love, love, love, this pattern. I had to write it out so I can fallow the instructions. (I'm a beginner) But after doing so can follow it with out a problem. I am knitting it in a lovely Lion Brand Heartland called Great Smoky Mountains.
