Lisa's Top-Down Long Lacy Cardigan

Here's another addition to our finished project photo gallery from Lisa W. of Anchorage, AK.


She knit the #74 Top-Down Long Lacy Cardigan, making a few changes to the sleeve and sweater length (ah - the beauty of the top-down design!)

Here is what she has to say:

"I used Elann.com's Superwash Bamboo (70% superwash wool/30% bamboo, held double throughout in
Shaded Cedar.
[The pattern was] well written with clever details like the knitted-in pockets.

I especially loved the  M1-L/M1-R increases to stabilize the raglan sleeves. It looks much more complicated than it was. I also like that it was easy to customize the sweater length and the sleeve length for a perfect fit."


Thanks, Lisa!  Great job!  The snowy background is not one I could ever do here in Los Angeles and it really is a nice backdrop for your cardigan.
