This pattern is part of Lost in the Woods- a collection of 12 patterns by three designers – 6 garments, 6 accessories – inspired by the forests we love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As dreamy and romantic as the springtime woods, this cardigan features its very own bluebell carpet, sweeping out from a pleated lace insert. Gentle A-line shaping and dropped shoulders make it easy to wear, while optional bust darts ensure a perfect fit.

This seamless cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom up, with sleeves knit down from the armholes. Snap closures and a decorative ribbon-lined button band add the perfect finishing touch.

Sizes

Finished bust circumference: 87.5 (92.5, 97, 101.5, 106, 111, 115.5, 120, 124.5, 129, 134) cm / 35 (37, 38.75, 40.5, 42.5, 44.25, 46.25, 48, 49.75, 51.75, 53.5) in

Shown in size 115.5 cm / 46.25 in (including large bust darts) with 10 cm / 4 in ease at upper bust. The deep V neck means that the cardigan does not close over the full bust, so it is recommended that you use your upper bust measurement to choose your size.

Yarn

1150 (1220, 1290, 1360, 1420, 1510, 1580, 1650, 1730, 1810, 1900) m / 1260 (1330, 1410, 1490, 1550, 1650, 1730, 1800, 1890, 1980, 2080) yds of ngering-weight yarn. I recommend using a yarn that will create a uid, drapey fabric at the stated gauge, and will block well.
