Product details

Mirkwood Cardigan is a cute layering piece for the summer. The shorter length is perfect for wearing over a dress or with a skirt. Leaf lace details on the yoke and pockets give this modest cardigan that little extra something, making it interesting to work on, yet sophisticated to wear in any garden party or summer wedding.

The cardigan is worked in one piece from the top down with a leaf lace pattern on the round yoke. Short-row shaping is used to add length to the back yoke. Waist and back shaping give this hip length cardigan a flattering hourglass shape.

Lace panels on the fronts create what look like patch pockets… but are actually worked with pocket linings on the inside. Neck and button bands, cuffs, and pocket welts are worked in twisted rib.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the lace patterns.

Gauge: 23 sts × 35 rows = 4"
