Lyrical Knits Soubrette PDF
The Soubrette Cardi from Lyrical Knits is meant to play a supporting role in the wardrobe while calling plenty of delightful attention to itself. Made in a light, lace weight yarn for a gossamer-like effect, this cardi is perfect for cool evenings or the AC. Wear it open, or close it with the addition of a button and crocheted-loop closure. Worked from the back of the neck and shoulders-down, short row shaping is used to help it curve around the neck and shoulders without flipping. The cardigan's set-in sleeves are created simultaneously with the upper bodice in a technique originally described by Barbara Walker (photo tutorial included), and the garter-lace edging is worked right along with the bodice.
