Lavinia Cardigan - English

Regular price $3.90

Lavinia Cardigan is worked top down with raglan increases - but with a “twists” to create the puffy effect of the sleeves. Around the waist a leaf eyelet pattern is worked. Right before the pattern short rows are worked to that the pattern curves slightly downwards on the back. After the pattern a number of increases are worked to give the cardigan a “dressy” look. The cardigan can be made with both long and three quarter sleeves.
