Lyrical Knits Iolanthe PDF

Lyrical Knits Iolanthe is a spritely, asymmetrical cardigan that has a small shawl sewn directly on to the collar. It was named after a fairy who was banished from Fairydom for marrying a mortal. The light, playful style of this sweater is accentuated by the row of small buttons running down the side. You could also choose to have a single button at the top and allow the fronts flare open. This beautifully feminine sweater is knit seamlessly from the top down.

This pattern is a downloadable PDF.
