The lovely Acorn Stitch pattern is an easy one to memorize; it’s basically a checkerboard with yarnovers and decreases every 4 rows. This cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom to the armholes (including a 4-stitch integrated front edging which is continued later to form the back neckband), then the fronts and back are worked separately to the shoulders, which are joined using 3-Needle Bind-Off. The sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up, then sewn in. The front edgings are continued along the back neck to the center back, attaching the edging to the back neck as you go. There are two sleeve versions – a 3/4-length sleeve and a long sleeve. Work the I-Cord ties as instructed, or use a shawl pin or stick pin to close the fronts.

The extremely simple lace pattern is presented in both written and charted formats.
