What you need to know

Layer up for the new season with a sweet cropped cardi featuring two lovely lace stitches. We’ve got
written and charted instructions for each pattern, so you can follow whichever takes your fancy. If you’d like a longer length cardigan, just work more repeats of Lace Pattern One before shaping the armholes, however, you may need an extra ball or two to do this. Block your pieces before working on
the neckband to even out your stitches and get the lace looking its best.

Don't forget to save your PDFs to your computer or tablet device as soon as it has been downloaded.
