Lyrical Knits Prescott PDF
Prescott from Lyrical Knits is a top-down cardigan with beautiful floral rib detailing along the bottom half of the sweater. Worked from the shoulders down, the set-in sleeves are created simultaneously with the 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. Make it in a basic sock yarn for an everyday, go-to sweater, or jazz it up with a special silk-blend yarn—either way, you’re sure to look wonderful with a custom fit! Lace pattern is both charted and written out.
