PATTERN NOTES
Since this cardi is worked in one piece to the armholes, the beginning and end of rows are the front
opening edges of the garment. I recommend that you avoid joining new balls of yarn at the
beginning or ends of rows, to keep these edges neat. The same holds true when you divide to work
the tops of the project, since the armholes edgings are finished in garter stitch.
Pdm: place distinguishable marker. You will need two markers of different colors or styles in order
to mark the side seams where the two front pieces are separated from the back piece.

(Note: make a note of where you left off in the lace patt, so that when you rejoin your yarn to

8.5, 8.5, 8.5] inches to top of shoulder, or desired length, ending with a WS row. BO loosely
knitwise.
FINISHING
Block lightly, if desired.
Seam shoulders using mattress stitch (or preferred seaming method). Begin at armhole edge and
work inwards. When seaming, catch only the knit sts on the front pieces in your seam; skip over
the purl sts. This means you will seam 3 front piece sts for every 2 back piece sts, and this will
create a slight gathered effect on your front pieces. Weave in ends.

Using crochet hook, and with RS facing, work 1 row single crochet around front opening and back
neck edges.
For tie closure: using 2 DPNs, CO 3 sts and work I-cord for 58[62, 66, 70, 74, 78, 82] inches. Cut
yarn, leaving a short tail, and thread on a tapestry needle. Draw the needle through the 3 sts and
pull tightly to close. Insert the I-cord through the YOs in the eyelet row and tie at front to close the
cardi. Alternatively, thread ribbon through the YOs in the eyelet row in lieu of i-cord.
To help keep the cardi closed, you may also want to sew hooks and eyes to the center front (just
above the eyelet row).

What a gorgeous pattern, and how nice of you to share it for free! (You absolutely could have
charged.) Im sorry to hear about your experience with the nameless magazine it is truely their
loss. Ive had some interesting experiences in that vein and its not worth the frustration, submit
elsewhere with a good reputation or personal history or post for sale, your designs excellent and
are worth paying for.

You have a wonderful web site. I love your book reviews of African American female novelists. Ive
read all of the novels and had the pleasure of meeting Paule Marshall when I was in grad school.
Im writing to ask if you can suggest a coat pattern. I want to make a coat; I have a Patons
pattern, but I dont think it will work. Id like to make a coat in an all-season yarn.
What do you think of Lion Brand yarn? I noticed you used one of their yarns for a project. In
general, what is your philosophy about how much to spend for yarn? For example, if I knit a coat,
which Ive never done before, should I use an inexpensive yarn in case I mess up, or should I risk
it and use something more expensive like cashmere for the coat on the cover of Vogue Knitting?
I envy you that you have time to sew. I learned to sew years ago and still have my Singer Touch
and Sew machine. Id like to start sewing again.
Thanks for your help.

I think this is one of the most beautiful sweaters. Thanks for publishing it. Im going to start it this
weekend. I think it will be a great addition to my spring/summer wardrobe. I recently purchased
several balls of the Ella Rae Shibu (silk/viscose) which Im going to use. I did my swatch last night
and I think it will turn out great. Thanks again!

I actually finished this cardi and had loads of fun with the pattern. To my surprise it was a fast
knitted piece. Once I have some pictures on my blogspot, Ill definately let you know. (Id love to
see a Viola-pattern one day) Thank you for sharing it!

This is gorgeous and Im going to buy some yarn as soon as I can get out of the house! I happened
upon the link to this pattern by cruising the pattern browser for free worsted weight cardigans. This
is wonderful! It reminds me of the Josephine top from IK. Id started that but got frustrated by the
smaller gauge and thought it would take forever. This is even better!

I love this pattern! I am on the top right front, but it looks like the instructions for the center
portion were left out. It goes from attaching the yarn to ws straight to the ribbing for the top of the
piece. Also, it looks like there is ribbing on the top of the back piece in the picture but all I see are
the instructions for the single crochet edges. Help! I cant wait to finish and wear it, but I want to
make sure I am doing it correctly.
