Dewdrops Cardi

This easy-wear cardi uses two lace knitting patterns. The peplum incorporates a dainty cable for textural interest and the body is worked in Dewdrops Lace. An optional I-cord tie or ribbon allows for ease in fitting, making this a versatile garment.

The cardi is worked in one piece from bottom edge to armholes, where it is divided and fronts and back are worked separately. Small sleevelets are cast on and worked with the body stitches. The only finishing is to sew underarm and shoulder seams. Sample shown in Size 1. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Intermediate knitters.
