Where's my poodle? cardi
This is a pattern for a cropped v-neck cardigan, with lace motif, stockinette, and 2 st cables. It is worked from the top down using the contiguous sleeve technique, developed by Susie Myers. You are encouraged to try on your cardi, as you knit, for a good fit.
This pattern is written ONLY, from the CO to Row 59. At Row 60, you may use the lace motif chart or written instructions, working repeats for a cropped or full length cardigan. (full length and full sleeves will affect yarn amounts)
- I apologize, the link for the JSSBO bind off does not work from the pattern, but it easily found online as Jenny's Surprising Stretchy Bind Off. -
Please note: The measurements for the shoulder spine include the neck rib, not from the cast-on edge.
