Yes, I did it! I put my most requested sweater for the Little Darlings in pattern form. And it’s ready for you to knit away on. Now, your Little Darling can have a closetful of her very own “light as a feather” cardigans.
When I was taking commissions this was the sweater everyone wanted. It is knit with mohair/silk lace weight yarn, and is as “light as a feather”. It is oh, so pretty, and is still one of my favorites as well.
My pattern gives you a total of nine different variations. You can choose three sweater lengths: cropped, mid, longer (for a slightly dropped waist bodice). There are three different sleeve lengths: short, elbow, long. The pattern includes some shaping in the body so that the sweater covers the beginning bit of a gathered skirt. It looks equally nice unbuttoned or buttoned.
The neckline edging and hemlines are all in garter stitch. Like my previous patterns, the entire sweater is knit in one piece with very minimal finishing.
Here are just a few past photos of sweaters I’ve made using this pattern. Please note that some of them have ribbed edgings.
If you’d like to see more examples (I’ve made LOTS!) of sweaters made with this pattern head on over to my Little Darlings Flickr album.
The sweater pattern is available for sale on Ravelry.
I wish you all a very lovely day! The sun is rising! It looks like we’re in for the fourth straight day with some sunshine. Yay!!! It’s glorious! (I won’t mention the temperature, it’s COLD today.)
Thank you for visiting! Bye for now!
