We love the juxtaposition of the graphic lace panel and stockinette on Amy Gunderson’s Sparkle in the Storm Cardigan. Mona knit this sparkly number for us with Berroco Flicker which has a beautiful metallic stripe built right in to the mostly alpaca yarn content. Soft and cozy with simple lines, this piece can easily be dressed up or down. The lace requires a bit of attention while knitting but otherwise this is a very straight-forward pattern – the body is knit in one piece (bottom-up), including the lace panel, to underarms and then back and fronts are worked separately. Some seaming at the end but not too much!
