A pretty cardigan with a v-neck front and back and symmetrical slanting lace patterns. This cardigan is knit from the top down – we work the neckline in four panels for the front and back right/left shoulders, then join them up to knit the body. Stitches are picked up round the armholes to form the sleeves.

The lace pattern repeat is quite wide, which means the gap between sizes is quite large. To counterbalance this and to make the sizing more inclusive, we worked samples in both wool and alpaca. The alpaca yarn loosens up a lot more after blocking, giving a different range of sizes to the wool yarn. We include sizings for both – yarn choice one gives a more snug fit than yarn choice two if you are undecided which to pick. Don’t feel you must use either wool or alpaca either, try different needle sizes to get the gauge of either yarn. The Dairsie Cardigan sample photographed was knit in a wool yarn, and the sister pattern Dairsie Sweater was knit with the alpaca. They were both worked in the smallest size and are pictured on a model with a 34”/85 cm bust.
