Laura Zukaite uses two shades of rose to accentuate the fitted lines of this unusual cardigan. Leaf motifs line the center-front edges, and a deep border of layered scallops, worked in intarsia, edges the body and the sleeves. The yoke is seamless; after the fronts, back, and sleeves are knitted, they’re joined and the entire yoke is worked back and forth on a circular needle.

Beautiful Review by Ann

Had this pattern for a long time and didn't begin knitting till I was sure I had the right skill level. Making this is easy and interesting. The end product is so beautiful one can't help but admire it. Good work from the designer.
