Dubonnet is an easy cardigan with a vintage feel, casual enough for jeans and a tee shirt, but also special enough to wear with a lovely sundress. It features 3/4 sleeves, a touch of lace and a hip length, plus delicate lipstick pockets that add pop of color while accenting the flattering, wearable silhouette. Lace breaks up the body and is centered on the low waist, above a deep ribbing for a modern touch and another flattering detail.
Knit seamlessly from the bottom up, this sweater is easy to modify for length, width, or lace panel placement. You can choose to work full or short sleeves, without having to rethink the design.
Eden Cottage Yarn’s Oakworth DK is a perfect lightweight cardigan choice - a bit rustic, in gorgeous, sophisticated pastel shades. Hearty enough to be worn day in and out, this Polwarth wool knits up into a light delicate fabric.
Sweater is shown with approx. 3”/8cm of ease, based on bust measurement.
