ABOUT THE DESIGN:
Pearl is a roomy, short cardigan featuring a simple lace pattern on parts of the body.
The cardigan is worked with two strands of the yarn held together.
The body is worked flat in one piece with no side seams. The sleeves are worked in the round using double pointed needles or circular needles. Body and sleeves are gathered at the raglan yoke which is also worked flat.
