Detailed Description

Melora may be cropped, but it is not short on style! This swingy little cardi has both cables and lace worked in vertical panels on the front, back, and sleeves. The pattern repeats are worked following three easy-to-read charts. The sweater is worked in one piece from the bottom up. Stitches are picked up at the armholes and worked downward for the 3/4-length sleeves. Stitches are picked up and worked in garter stitch for the neck bands. The finished chest measurements are 36 (40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72)" with finished lengths of 16.5 (17, 17.5, 18, 18.5, 19, 19.5, 19.5, 20, 20)". This sweater can be machine washed on delicate in cold water and dried flat. Berroco has rated this Alison Green design as requiring intermediate skill level.

Melora is knit using Meraki, one of Berroco's summer yarns. It is a blend of 71% cotton, 24% hemp, and 5% polyester, which makes it comfortable for even the hottest days. The cotton and hemp take the dye slightly differently, plus the yarn is thick and thin, so the finished fabric has a wonderful texture with subtle color variations. It knits at a DK weight and is knit at 5.25 stitches per inch in this project.
