Springtime in Virginia


This time of year I love to have simple cardigans on hand to toss over a breezy spring skirt or a pair of jeans and a t shirt. So when this lovely Plucky Sweater yarn arrived in the mail, I couldn't wait to cast on a sweet feminine cardi. Springtime In Virginia has a touch of lace along the front edges, while a broad panel of the same lace adorns the back.

Three buttons join the fronts with crochet button loops. I've included a crochet button loop tutorial as a second pdf along with the pattern just in case you've never made this type of closure.

Springtime In Virginia is worked from the bottom up, all in once piece, sleeves are knit separately, and joined to the body at the yoke.

Three-quarter sleeves, with seed stitch cuffs, provide just the right amount of coverage for late spring days, or cool summer evenings.
