This is what Let's Knit say about the cardigan: 'Distract yourself from the gloomy weather with a bright cardigan and a pattern you can really get stuck into! There’s lace, short row shaping, a one row button hole and a smocking technique to try and just look at the finished result. There are both written and charted instructions for the stitch pattern.'
The cardigan is worked flat from the bottom up and then seamed. There's short row shoulder shaping, waist shaping, a fun and easy to follow smocked lace pattern and one row button hole. If you find the finishing involved in knitting a garment flat and then seaming it daunting, do check out my Online Professional Finishing Workshop or I'll also be teaching this at the Wool Merchant, Dartington, Devon on 6 June 2017. In my Finishing workshops (whether online or in person) I teach you all my secrets for a perfect finish including mattress stitch, short row shoulder shaping (wrap and turn short rows and German short rows, picking up stitches, one row button holes, setting in a sleeve cap and more.
