Description
Large eyelets made by controlled dropped stitches give a lacy, feminine look to the wide edgings on Therese Chynoweth's cardigan. The edgings are worked from side to side, then stitches are picked up from the selvedge edge for the sweater body. The front neck begins as a shallow V, then changes into a rounded crew, hinting at a sweetheart shape. Worked in a delicate mohair, the sweater is feather light.
