Description

Some of the main clothing design elements during the Regency era were the empire waist and delicate botanical motifs. I wanted to incorporate those design elements into a cardigan and enhance the knitting experience by combining several techniques such as lace, cables, and eyelet patterning. This lightweight cardigan is cool enough to wear on a sunny spring day in Bath.

After searching for a long time trying to find a pattern for a short sleeved cardigan, I discovered Camden Place. It is a beautiful design and I was very pleased with the service and choice of lovely patterns from Interweave.

Highly recommended.
