Nothing can beat the practicality of a reversible cardigan. It never goes on the wrong way round and it’s a different look every time! Both sides of.
Elisa Cardigan is designed bottom up featuring circular yoke. The delicate lace stitch pattern creates differently textured looks, each lovely in it’s own way.
Elisa Cardigan is a circular yoke construction worked in one piece in rows from the bottom up. The lower body is worked back and forth in a single piece from the lower edge to the underarms. After completing the lower body, the sleeves are worked in rounds from the cuffs, then joined to body stitches to work the yoke in a single piece to the shoulders and neck.

The pattern provides instructions for 6 months (12 months, 2, 4, 6) [8, 10, 12, 14] years sizes, including chart and written instructions.

Average review
I am really pleased with the product even though I am only halfway finished. The pdf is nicely organized and and well written. The layout of the pattern is set-up in blocks so you can identify the basic requirements from the pattern and there are grids as well as written instructions which I found very helpful. Having both gives me two opportunities to check my work. The pictures are well done and perfect angles for offering feedback on your progress. Overall, this pattern does the job and is aesthetically pleasing to view as well. This is actually a fun piece to make and reversible sides is an outstanding feature!

This turned out beautiful, I've had many compliments on it. Some of the directions are difficult to comprehend, but I figured it out.
