The New Cardigan is Finished!

lace cotton cardigan knitting pattern

Here is the latest project off of SweaterBabe's needles - a romantic and pretty shaped cardigan.  It's knit from the top-down, has 3/4 length sleeves that are slightly flared, and features a beautifully flared shape.  The waist is cinched with a wide ribbon and mock-cable belt loops that match the mock-cables in the flared bottom.

Knit in Blue Sky Alpaca's dyed cotton.  It's a wonderfully soft and very vibrantly colored yarn.

Look for this pattern coming very soon!  I'll be busy writing it up right away.

Here's the gorgeous detailing of the back:

Beautiful work. Can't wait to order the pattern! Wish I could design like you do. Maybe one day... :)


It's gorgeous!! I can see where it will be very warm since alpaca is used...warmer than wool more elegant. This would be wonderful to wear on a cool evening to a nice restaurant even when attending a wedding. Very, very upscale. Thank you for sharing your blessed talent with us. Jo

Your cardigan is lovely. I would love to have the pattern. Of course I don't look good with a belt, but I would wear it anyway. LOL

The cardigan is beautiful. I want to make one for my daughter and Mother (maybe for Christmas) Would this also make up in cotton for cool summer nights? Your work is beautiful.

It's ready!!! Get this pattern at:

I tried to include a wide range of sizing, so that's mainly why it took a bit to get the pattern ready for sale. Thanks for waiting!

And YES, it is actually knit in a great organically grown cotton from Blue Sky Alpacas, making it perfect for summer or early fall.
