Saturday Snapshot: Simply Knitting 149

Saturday Snapshot: Martin Storey City Chic lace cardigan

Stretch your knitting skills in our latest issue, with this exquisite lace cardigan by Martin Storey.

30th July 2016

Take a closer look at our stunning cover garment in issue 149, designed by Martin Storey. It's a spellbinding project for experienced knitters, knitted in one strand of Rowan Kidsilk Haze and one strand of Rowan Fine Lace. Combining these two yarns gives the fluffy halo of mohair and the cosiness of laceweight yarn, so it's beautiful to look at and sumptuously soft to wear.

It fits sizes UK 8 to UK 26 (32 to 50 inch bust), and structure is added to the drapy lace design by the deep ribbed edge and stocking stitch sleeves. Setting in the sleeves also gives the cardi its neat tailored look.
