Jo Allport designed this pretty edge-to-edge cardigan, with a lace detail and loose-fitting sleeves.

17th March 2016

In Simply Knitting issue 144, on sale now, is this pretty cardigan. It's knitted in Rico Design's Essentials Soft Merino Aran, which is 100% superwash Merino wool.

It has three-quarter length dolman sleeves, and contrasting garter stitch and lace stitch patterns make for an elegant but contemporary knit that’s wonderfully wearable and perfect for any occasion. 

The lacy eyelets allow a glimpse of what you’re wearing underneath too – pick a contrasting colour to show off the lacework.

Rico's Essentials Soft Merino Aran comes in 39 great shades: soft neutrals, plus brights and pastels.
