The Vera Lynn Cardigan


Categories: ,


The Vera Lynn cardigan is an oversized cardigan and yet so feminine with the wide ribbing on the body. For the cardigan, the methods tubular cast on and bind off are used to ensure a nice finish along with increasing the functionality. The cardigan is worked top—down with shoulder increases. To form the neckline, German short rows are worked along with the increases. The yoke and body are worked in the flat, back and forth with stockinette stitches. The sleeves are worked in the round. There is a positive ease with approximately 10-15 cm around the bust. Therefore, measure your bust circumference to find the right size.
