The Wayside Lace Cardigan pattern by the Schoppel-Wolle Design team was posted to Ravelry a couple of days ago and I am besotted. The combination of cables and lace, the colour, the casual yet luxurious style – what’s not to love? Knit with Schoppel-Wolle Cashmere Queen – a blend of 35% Cashmere, 45% Merino, and 20% Silk – the cardigan provides a perfect balance of softness, drape, and stitch definition. While it looks complicated, the construction of this sweater couldn’t be easier – it’s knit sideways in one piece and the sleeves are set into the armholes at the end. This may just be my first project of 2013!
