New Pattern - The Rosina Nunn Cardigan

I've published this one on Ravelry, Love Knitting and it will be up on Patternfish soon. 

It's a short sleeve summer cardigan with an all over Diamond Bobble Lace Stitch. The stitch pattern appears in text and chart formats. The sleeve is a classic set in version. The body is worked bottom up in a single piece to the underarms, then divided to work to the shoulders. The edging on the fronts and neckline is picked up on a circular needle and knitted out. Buttonholes are created between the edge of the garment and the band. The sample is knit in a hand dyed wool and silk blend yarn, which creates a fabric with lots of drape. It is shown with 5 cm (2 inches) of positive ease.

The yarn used in sample has been discontinued. I've searched out some other suitable yarns already. Suggested substitutes include: Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3-ply. Lorna’s Laces Pearl or Brooks Farm Yarn Four Play. I recommend using a worsted weight yarn which knits to gauge and is a mix of wool and silk or any yarn which creates a fabric with drape.  For an up-to-date substitution list please go here, on

I've got photos taken on my mannequin and a couple of me wearing it which were taken by a friend. 

BTW, it's very helpful for me if my readers go to the pages for my patterns  on whatever site you buy patterns from and click on add to favorites or add to queue. It means more knitters see my patterns and they don't get lost at the bottom of the list when knitters do searches for specific project types.
