Winged Knits Islette PDF
Islette from Winged Knits is a cropped cardigan that may be worn 3 ways—fully closed and buttoned behind the neck, buttoned with the single button in front and left drapey, or unbuttoned with the fronts allowed to flow open. The body is worked from the bottom up with seams at the shoulders and the sleeves are knit by picking up and working short row sleeve caps and are then knit down in the round. The simple construction and lace panels make for a fun and easy knit. Lace pattern is both charted and written out.
