Set-in sleeve cardigan with a flattering scoop neckline and a band of tulips running along the bottom and sleeves. Gentle waist shaping provides a slightly tailored look. Perfect for winter with a pencil skirt (in leather, perhaps?) and boots, it will take you into spring worn over a cute vintage dress. The tulip motif was inspired by the colors and designs on traditional Turkish tile work.

Gauge: 29 sts and 38 rows = 4” (10 cm) in St st on larger needles. Be sure to check gauge for both the plain stockinette and colorwork sections; you may need to go up a needle size for the colorwork.

Notes: Cardigan is worked back and forth in one piece, then divided at armholes and worked separately to the shoulders. Sleeves are worked in the round to the underarm with sleeve cap shaping worked back and forth. Colorwork patterns are provided in chart form only. There are a fair number of long floats in the Tulip Chart pattern, so take care to catch the floats by twisting them with the working yarn every few stitches to secure them.
