Jennie's Whispering Leaves Lace Cardigan in an extra long length!
June 10, 2013
Jennie M. of Round Rock, TX knit up this #141 Whispering Leaves Lace Top-Down Cardigan in very pretty gold/yellow tones. Plus, she extended the tunic-length to duster length to suit her wardrobe needs. The beauty of a top-down design!
Here are her comments on knitting up this #141 Whispering Leaves Lace Top-Down Cardigan:
"A super fun and fast pattern that only takes one skein of yarn? A-Mazing!
I mirrored the lace panel on the fronts for personal preference and kept on knitting until I used up all the yarn.
I was aiming for a duster length to wear with jeans or over a dress or skirt. I love it! It's the perfect knitwear piece for Texas.
Jennie used Gertrudis yarn by DizzyLettuce Yarns in the color Tangerine.
Using the blocking wires and the mannequin to block it and keep the rounded shape at the bottom is so clever!
Thanks, Jennie. It's a gorgeous length! Love the subtle color changes too.
