Lush-ious

My latest knitting

It started out as a cardigan for Miss Lizzie’s 16th birthday

But sadly it was too small for her but fits Miss Annie perfectly

It is unusually constructed. You knit the lace panel first and block it.
Then cast on and knit the top part and the collar. Then you cast on the bottom part of the lace panel and knit the rest of the cardigan.

This pattern pushed me quite a bit. I had to learn how to do a provisional cast on for the lace,short rows and button holes.
Ravelled here

  1. I’m going to pretend I understood the directions, and actually, I think I did. I can’t imagine how you make the lace! Such a nice looking sweater. I wish it had turned out gigantic and you were forced to send it to me. ;-D
