Dress up for autumn fun with a simple, scoop-neck cardigan with lace panels. Ducket is knit seamlessly from the top down, with lace panels alternating with reverse stockinette. The upper back is knit first and put on hold. Stitches for the front are picked up from the cast-on edge and knit down, and the body is joined at the underarms to continue in one piece. Waist shaping is added in the reverse stockinette section down the sides to keep things easy, and the waist is finished with one-by-one ribbing. Seamless, 3/4-length, stockinette sleeves are picked up from the armholes and knit in the round, using short rows to shape the set-in-style sleeve caps. Classic ribbed button and neckbands finish the look. This cardigan fits best with 0-3 in / 0-8 cm of negative ease.
