A little lady like this one needs a rose-festooned cardigan to show off her style. It is made using Sublime's Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK for an extra touch of luxury. The yarn is a very soft but machine washable blend of 75% extra fine Merino wool, 20% silk, and 5% cashmere and knits at 5.5 stitches per inch. The back, fronts, and sleeves are knit separately and then joined. Stitches are picked up and worked for the garter stitch edgings and the roses are knit separately and then sewn on. Finished chest measurements are 17.75 (19.75, 21.75, 24)" with finished lengths of 8 (9.5, 11, 12.5)".
The kit includes the pattern book The Third Little Sublime Hand Knit Book and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- single point needles in US size 6 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- single point needles in US size 3
- 1 button
- tapestry needle
