Cardigan is best of both worlds

2013-04-05 11.50.02

V-Lace Cardi combines the ease of bottom up construction and in the round ease with a newer technique for working set-in sleeves.  Sleeves are worked in the round from the top down and feature short rows where the wrap and turn is not picked up, but rather a design element of the sleeves.  A-line construction and one-button closure adds to the flattering look of the piece.  Cardigan is made using Berocco Maya.
