CRESTLINE is a pretty cardigan with short sleeves, twisted ribbing, and ribbon lace. I designed this sweater to wear on vacation in Vancouver, BC, and it was perfect over dresses and tees every day! The smooth hand- dyed yarn is worked at a slightly open gauge, and is lightweight but still warm and comfortable. Great for ocean breezes and office air-conditioning.
Worked seamlessly as a compound raglan from the top down, with body worked flat and sleeves worked in the round. The lower body lace section is a little narrower than the bust as written, but don’t worry if you need a bit more room – notes are given for modifying the width. Meant to be worn with negative or minimal ease at the bust. For the best size, measure a sweater you like the fit of, and make the size closest to it.
Shown in size 40” / 100cm on a 42” / 106.5cm bust.
