DESCRIPTION

Rockweed features an ornate lace pattern on the round yoke and hem. Sharp double decreases made on both sides of the work create a scalloped neckline and undulating waves accented by garter ridges.

Rockweed is a buttoned, fingering-weight cardigan worked seamlessly from the top down. Short rows placed at the bottom of the yoke create a well-fitting, round neckline whereas waist shaping at princess seams give the cardigan a slim silhouette. Garter-stitch button bands are made as you go so there's very little finishing work at the end!

Rockweed comes in 9 sizes from XS to 5X. The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the lace pattern.
