I am pleased to announce that test knit request for my next pattern release – the Sweetpea Cardigan Lite – has now been sent out.

This pattern is the same basic construction as the Sweetpea Cardigan, but in a lighter fingering weight yarn. It is still made in one piece, with no seams, and is quick enough to work up in a couple of days!

Starting with the collar, increases are added to make the shoulders and short sleeves. The sleeves are then cast off and the front and back sections joined together all the way to the hem at the very end.
