The Parker Cardigan playfully subverts the lace sweater concept: A dense eyelet bud lace hugs the waist, while a solid upper body has structured, cleanlined drape. Deborah Newton includes tiny, subtle shoulder pads to create a high 1940s-influenced shoulder.


Finished Size: 38 (401⁄2, 431⁄2, 461⁄2, 49)" bust circumference. Sweater shown measures 38", modeled with plenty of positive ease.

Classic Elite Allegoro (70% organic cotton, 30% linen; 152 yd [139 m]/50 g): #5619 lupine pink, 7 (8, 8, 9, 10) skeins.

Yarn Weight: #3 - Light

Sweater—size 5 (3.75 mm). Shoulder pads—size 7 (4.5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Removable markers (m); six 1⁄2" buttons; tapestry needle.

Gauge: 23 sts and 32 rows = 4" in seed block patt on smaller needles; 22 sts and 32 rows = 4" in bud patt on smaller needles (based on number of sts on Row 1 of patt).
