Philodendron cardigan - hand knitting pattern

The perfect cardigan for autumn in the park. Leafy lace on the front panels are worked side to side.

This cardigan is worked in pieces, then sewn together after blocking. The Back is worked bottom up. The Fronts are worked sideways from the front band to the armhole edge, with short-row shaping to shape the waist. The Sleeves are worked from the bottom up. Stitches are left on hold for the Sleeve caps and a portion of the Front armholes; these held stitches are then grafted together using Kitchener stitch. If you prefer, you may bind off the stitches, then sew the pieces together. The Front armholes are worked to a longer depth than the Back. The lace patterns are presented in chart form only.
