Lyrical Knits Sleepy Jean Cardigan PDF
The Sleepy Jean Cardigan from Lyrical Knits is worked from the shoulders down, with simultaneous set-in sleeves that are worked with the upper bodice (photo tutorial included). The button plackets are worked along with the bodice as well, and allow you to place as many or as few buttons as you like without having to plan ahead. The peplum is worked separately as a top-down, crescent shawlette that is sewn to the hem after blocking. The shawlette itself is worked from the top-down, and the garter tab cast on is re-engineered to eliminate the “point” that often accompanies this type of shawl construction.
Shaping to the waist and hip is accomplished along princess “seams” to allow for maximum customization. There is a detailed section in the pattern for advice on how to adapt the shaping to your own fit preferences.
