Fiber Dreams 86 Illyria PDF
A lightweight cardigan knit with fingering weight yarn on larger-than-normal needles, Illyria from Fiber Dreams is worked from hem up in one piece to the armholes. After shoulders are seamed, stitches are picked up for the ¾-length sleeves, and worked in short rows to the underarm, then in the round to the cuff. A single column of simple lace panels decorates cardigan fronts and sleeves. A double column of lace spirits its way up the center of the back. Lace pattern is both charted and written out.
