Matcha Latte

DESCRIPTION

Matcha Latte is a fingering-weight cardigan with a fern-like lace motif on the yoke. The semi-cropped length makes it perfect for wearing with a skirt or over a dress.

This snug-fitting cardigan is worked in one piece from the top down as a cross between a circular yoke and raglan. Short-row shaping is used for improved fit on the back. A deep twisted-rib hem and a tapered body shaped with back decreases give the garment a slim silhouette.

Sleeves are worked in stockinette with lace details and ribbing on the cuffs. Button bands are also worked in twisted ribbing.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the lace patterns.
