A light fun pattern and ideal to wear over a strapless top or halter top.
You want your crochet work to show off.
The sleeves and back are crochet all in one piece and then at the sleeves section sewn together. Once that is done it gets easier. Just pick up the required stitches all around the body opening. Knitting in the round is easy now as it is a knit 2, purl 2, knit 2 continue to end …Lacy Cardigan 2016
The Lace Cardigan pattern ..In Sizes Small / Medium and it is easy to adapt to larger size too. I’ll be working this pattern up again in my “KnitswissYarns” shortly and have pattern available again….Happy knitting
Yes knit up all in white and black. I thought I’ll create something fun and fast. So you too can knit it up asap.
Material needed for this cowl is:
2 skeins of Katia Air Lux about 600 meters in black
2 skeins of Katia Kiss about 500 meters in cream
1 Circular Needle size 4.5mm at a 60 to 80cm length
I am holding two strands of Katia AirLux together and using 4.5mm needle
Cast on 220 stitches. This cowl will stretch a bit so if you like it shorter cast on 180 to 200 sts. I can wrap this cowl easily around my neck 3x
now knit in the round don’t worry if it is twisted!
**Knit one round ,
Purl one round,
Knit one round,
Purl one round…. and so on till you have 5 rib.
You want to end with a purl row.
Next row; k1, 2 yarn overs, k1, 2 yarn overs, k1, 2 YO, K1, 2YO continue this way to end of row.**
Next row; knit all stitches but drop all yarn overs (YO) down. That will give you the bigger stitch.
Next row; start with one purl row and then follow pattern
reaped like ** these rows ** till you run out of yarn or have the desired width of cowl.
Cast off with a bigger size needle to make sure it is lose enough.
I used different yarn too. Some I held double and some I only used one strand. Play with your colours too. In the middle pattern I held one white and one black strand together.
my cowl has a total of 5 pattern reps.
Enjoy and yes if you see an error in this pattern write-up just send me a note.
