Lyrical Knits Prescott DK Cardigan PDF
Based on the popular Prescott pattern, the Prescott DK Cardigan from Lyrical Knits is a top-down cardigan worked in a Sport or DK weight yarn with beautiful floral rib detailing along the bottom half of the sweater. Worked from the shoulders-down, the set-in sleeves of the cardigan are created simultaneously with the upper bodice in a technique originally described by Barbara Walker. The button plackets are worked along with the bodice, and allow you to place as many or as few buttons as you like without having to plan ahead. Shaping to the waist is accomplished along princess “seams” to allow for maximum customization. There is very little hip shaping, however, since the floral lace hem is intended to stretch to fit. Lace rib pattern is both charted and written out.
