Spelunking Cardigan

Spelunking CardiganThe Spelunking Cardigan is a waist-length lacy cardigan, featuring a lace edging along the bottom edge and on the sleeve cuffs.
The lace motif reminds me of stalactites and stalagmites found in caves – hence the name.
The body of the cardigan is knit in one piece to the armholes. Sleeves are knit flat and sewn to the body.


Finished measurements: 32  (36, 40, 44, 48)” bust

Yarn: 1 skein of Wollmeise Lace-Garn (shown in Pfefferminz Prinz)
Needles: 3.0 mm
Gauge: 22 sts/34 rows = 4×4” in stockinette

The pattern is available in downloadable pdf-format.  The lace pattern is charted.

    I am very glad that you published the pattern for this lovely cardigan.

    You wrote, that you got 22 stitches for 4″ after blocking.
    And the number of stitches before blocking ?

    Thanks !

    The number of stitches before blocking will vary depending on the knitter. My best suggestion is to knit a swatch and block it. :-)
