I’ve finally graced the pages of Vogue Knitting. It was a personal goal of mine and mission accomplished! Not only that, I’ve been watching the stats in Ravelry and the design has been well received. That’s always gratifying.
This Classic Lace Cardigan is has an all-over lace pattern with a slight variation of some garter ridges on the cuffs and hem.
The three-quarter sleeves and drapey quality of the milk yarn (yes, it’s an 80% milk / 20% cotton blend) make for a very feminine look.
I love how the English tailored shoulders turned out. They are actually easier to work than conventional shoulders because the front shoulder is straight with no shaping. The shaping only occurs on the back so you only have to fiddle with shaping in lace on one piece.
The Vogue Knitting team even put together a descriptive video of the sweater while being modeled. It’s so nice to see the design on a person and to see it from all angles before embarking on the project.
