“Oh! What walks I had along the grassy banks, where my friends the frogs were dreaming on the leaf of a nénuphar, and where the coquettish and delicate water lilies suddenly opened to me….” - Guy de Maupassant

This is a pattern for a top down cardigan with set in sleeves. You will work the back and front yokes with short row shaping and then join the 3 pieces to work the body. You will pick up sts for the sleeves and work these in the round. Finally you will work buttonbands and collar. There is sleeve and waist sinching by working estonian braid and cable leaf motif on smaller needles.

gauge/tension: 19 sts x 28 rows = 4”/10cm st st over Moss Stitch on 4.5mm needles
