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.

My newest design is an Aran cardigan which is worked from cuff to cuff with lapels and back collar worked with the yoke.
After the fun with the sleeves and yoke portion are worked, it’s smooth sailing with stockinette stitch and bands that are worked with the body of the sweater. Even the buttonholes in the yoke are worked with the sweater.
This minmal finish sweater needs only to have the sleeves sewn before starting the body from below the underarms as well as some blocking and weaving of yarn tails.
This a fun and cozy sweater .
