Seasons of Love PDF
From the Designer:
Named for the signature song from the musical Rent!, “Seasons of Love” is a lightweight, lacy cardigan that can be worn as a wrap sweater, pinned at the underbust, or left open with the fronts gently draped to the sides.
After working a strip of lace for the back of the neckline, stitches are picked up from the lace strip, and the garment is then knit seamlessly (back-and-forth) from the top (neck) down to the hem. The raglan sleeves can be made either short or ¾ length, and it is intended to be worn with 0-2” of positive ease at the bust (i.e. 0-2” larger than the actual bust). Instructions for a cropped version (without the lace at the hem) are included.
A crochet hook is only necessary for the chained bind off at the lace hem. If you prefer a knitted bindoff, you may bind off as usual with your knitting needle, but do so very loosely so that the lace scallops can be opened easily with blocking.
