This whimsical, light-as-air cardigan is an homage to the noble turtle. The body of the cardigan features the lace pattern "Tracks of the Turtle" and the edges of the cuffs and hem are waves. And, making its way slowly up the's a turtle parade! The cardigan is seamless and uses provisional cast-ons and grafting for the modular construction. The edges and lapels are worked in place. The loose fitting garment comes in 4 sizes ranging from 37 to 60 inches. A detailed cheat sheet is included to assist with the grafting and stitch patterns are provided in both charted and written formats.
Designer's note: Sometimes it isn''t until everything is blocked and photographed that I realize there is something I'd like to do differently. When I received the photographs from Knit Picks I realized the edges of the lapels could be more substantial. The pattern now offers 2 finishing methods for the lapel edges. Both call for the 3 edge stitches to be worked holding two strands of yarn (unlike the sample pictured). Version 1 is finished with a frog for which the directions are included. Version 2 is finished with crochet loops and button placket. Pictures of the modified lapel can be seen both in the pattern and the Ravelry page for the design.
