We are so excited to bring you our lastest pattern release - The Soufflé Batwing Cardigan!
The Soufflé Batwing cardigan is a boxy oversized piece with impressive batwing sleeve. Something to be treasured, passed on and cherished through generations. The time spent working on this fine lace cardigan will show through, even to non-knitters! Perfect for those windy summer days when you need something to throw over that dress you can never find a jumper to compliment. The shape is flattering to all shapes and sizes and soo easy to wear.
Worked with 1 strand of our lace cashmere, Veranita, or our light fingering weight yarn, Soufflé, it's as light as air and so soft on the skin you will never want to take it off.
Knitted top down by first working the 2 shoulder panels in stockinette stitch. You then pick up stitches along the edges of the panels and knit the front and back pieces individually. Horseshoe lace is worked throughout the upper body. The pieces are joined underarm so there are no side seams to work! the waist shaping is knitted in stockinette stitch and decorative decreases are knitted which tie in to the horseshoe lace pattern above.
The sleeves are picked up and knitted in the round, continuing the stockinette shoulder panel all the way down the tops of the sleeves.
Size: 1 - 5 (XS-5XL)
-4mm/US 6 circular needles, varying lengths for knitting flat and in the round -3.25mm/US 3 DPN's-2.25mm/US 1 straight, short circular or DPN's (for button bands).
