Item details

Barb Wire is a fun and fairly easy cardigan to knit for Spring, Summer or Fall. Knit in one piece, with the yarn held double throughout, the cardigan is a quick knit that requires minimal sewing.

The dainty leaf lace edging flows up the front as well as up the frilly cap sleeves.

Knit Picks Gloss Lace Yarn creates a wonderfully light and airy cardigan which will be perfect for warmer weather. Straight needles are used in the beginning, then switch to circular needles once stitches are added for the sleeves.

Please note, the cardigan is a tighter fit and will require blocking. If you wish a looser fit you will want to knit a larger size to ensure the desired fit. This cardigan may be closed using a pin or hook and eye.
