This is the #112 Dramatic Lace Wrap Cardigan, one of my MOST popular knitting patterns. My original sample was in a muted grey/brown.
Now, check out this finished version from knitter Amy H. of Orange, CA.
She used 100 purewool Merino Worsted Single-ply in Verde Manzana (Green Apple).
"I had such a fun time knitting this--the lace pattern and the other pretty details really made the time fly, and I enjoyed the way it was constructed seamlessly.
I fell in love with the pattern the first time I saw it, and my finished product is everything I hoped it would be--and it only took a couple of weeks from start to finish.
The mock cable trim at the bottom of the back and at the raglan 'seams' was a nice surprise--I had never done that technique before, but the instructions were clear and I loved the results. Thanks for writing such a beautiful and unique pattern--it was very thorough and I had no trouble following it." -- Amy H.
