Rheya Cardigan

Designer Maria Leigh

Finished Size 34½ (38½, 42½, 46½, 50½)" bust circumference, buttoned. Cardigan shown measures 34½", modeled with ½" of positive ease.

Yarn Cascade Yarns Heritage Solids (75% superwash merino wool, 25% nylon; 437 yd [400 m]/3½ oz [100 g]): #5643 sunflower (MC), 4 (4, 4, 5, 5) skeins; #5652 mustard (CC), 1 skein.

Needles Size 2 (2.75 mm): 32" circular (cir) and set of double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Markers (m); stitch holders; tapestry needle; ten ½" buttons.

Gauge 37 sts and 39 rows = 4" in lace patt, relaxed; 28 sts and 42 rows = 4" in lace patt, stretched.

A leaf lace corrugated with purl ribs makes a fabric that hugs curves. The Rheya Cardigan focuses on fit throughout—the set-in sleeve is worked in the round, then divided for the cap. Narrow shoulders and waist-shaping complete the tailored look.
