Sea to Skye
Sea to Skye is an elegant wrap/cardigan that is worn short in the front and long in the back. The lacy, ruffled collar encompasses the entire cardigan, making it an interesting garment to knit.
Worked in one piece from the collar edge down, Sea to Skye requires only intermediate knitting skills. Increases, decreases, and a few short rows are the only requirements needed to shape the yoke and body. If you have shied away from patterns that include short rows, please try to get your courage up and try the shadow wrap short row method. You will never fear short rows again. This pattern includes a tutorial explaining the shadow wrap method but there are also plenty of resources on the web for you to follow.
This pattern also includes full instructions for shortening the cardigan. If you are working the shorter version, please follow the instructions given in blue.
