Velum Cardigan

I would love to introduce my newest design Velum Cardigan, Interweave Knits, Spring 2015. Preview is just upload this afternoon. Total two designs picked by Editor for this issue. Another is Rheya Cardigan. I had to use thin needles and thin yarn for both delicate projects. It’s so happy to meet them on the Megazine. Can’t wait to get a copy. It’s available digital download only at the Interweave store now. Physical release is in February 17th. Ravelry Design page is here.

Finished Size 40½ (44½, 49, 53)” bust circumference. Cardigan shown measures 40½”, modeled with 7½” of positive ease.

Yarn Brown Sheep Company Cotton Fleece (80% cotton, 20% merino wool; 215 yd [197 m]/3½ oz [100 g]): #CW-240 pink-a-boo, 9 (10, 12, 14) skeins.

Needles Size 3 (3.25 mm): 60″ circular (cir) and set of double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Marker (m); tapestry needle; stitch holder.

Gauge 20 sts and 34 rows = 4″ in Seed st.

The roomy Velum Cardigan is worked in one piece, beginning at the lower edge of the back. Once the back and fronts are worked, stitches for the edging are cast on and then worked in lace all around the body, joining the narrow lace band by picking up stitches along the body and decreasing the two pieces together.
