This cardigan is worked from the bottom-up, has rounded edges in the front, v-neck shaping, and set-in sleeves. Ribbing for the sleeves is worked in Half Fisherman’s rib. Once the cardigan is sewn together, stitches are picked up all around the collar and cardigan edge and a beautiful Two-Color Brioche rib is worked for 16 (32 double knit) rounds. Detailed explanations are included in this patter on how to work the Half Fisherman’s rib and the Two-Color Brioche rib.

* 40” circular needle is needed for collar that is worked in the round. Instead of using multiple length needles, the cardigan pieces can be worked in 40” length needles.

#6 Summer Waves Cardi
(C) Cascade Yarns

This pattern can be downloaded as a FREE pattern, thanks to Cascade Yarns: LINK
This summer cardigan is great for wearing over a tank top or a sundress. Because the Ultra Pima Cotton is relatively light, it is great to wear even on a super hot summer day, but also works great to ward off an evening or air conditioning chill. 
The cardigan is worked seamless, from the top-down. The pretty lace panels are worked by picking up stitches from the front side seams. Because it is a top down knit, the cardigan can easily be lengthened or shortened.
