Etching

pattern price: $6.50



The sweetness of a little lace, the spice of cables and a lot of straightforward stockinette stitch blend together to create Etching. This short-sleeved cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down with raglan increases. It features cabled side panels and lace detailing above the bottom hem and on the sleeves as well as a cabled collar and front bands. Knit in a sport-weight yarn, it's the perfect light-weight cardi for spring and summer.
