NHK18-9 Lace Front Cardigan

Here's a lovely cardi with gorgeous shaping: beautifully set-in sleeves and a dipped back neck, straight sides. The back is all st st after the ribbing, which gives you a bit of a vacation before the lacy fronts. This pattern is only rated 'Experienced' because of the armhole shaping in the lace pattern (which changes stitch count depending on the row)-- if you can manage that, then the 12-row pattern repeat should be fairly straightforward. It's certainly a beauty, and will dress up any warmer-weather outfit. From Nashua Handknits Book 18, North American Designers 4.
