This is the kind of cardigan that builds a wardrobe. It can be worn over a blouse, tee, or dress and its classic design can look dressy or casual. The skirt flares out as you move, showing off the lace panel on each side plus the simple lace detail at the hem. The body is worked in one piece from the bottom up, following charts for the lace motifs. The set-in sleeves are worked separately and sewn in. The same lace design from the sides is worked on the sleeves. Finished chest measurements are 34.25 (38.25, 42.25, 46.25, 50.25, 54.25) with finished lengths of 28.25 (28.75, 28.75, 29.25, 29.25, 29.75)". Designed by Rachel Henry and rated by Skacel as skill level experienced.
Kenzie is a wonderful blend of 50% New Zealand Merino, 25% nylon, 10% angora, 10% alpaca, and 5% silk noils that add the tweediness. It is a delight to knit with, everything from shawls, blankets, to sweaters. Hand wash and dry flat.
