Introducing my latest pattern: Love Lane!
Pattern: Love Lane
Designer: Rachel Henry (that’s me!)
Available: booklet #9219 “Maple Hill Farm” (from Classic Elite Yarns)
Yarn: CEY Provence in two colors; 3 hanks of the main color (2640 “Gunmetal Grey”) and 2 hanks of the contrast color (2682 “Asparagus”) (using 100-gram hanks)
Of Note: The pattern references Provence as coming in 50-gram hanks, which is a new put-up. For clarity, here are my yardage calculations for all sizes:
Sizes XS (S, M, L, 1X, 2X)
Main Color: 475(535, 615, 695, 780, 860) yards
Contrast Color: 335(360, 385, 420, 460, 495) yards
This tailored cropped cardigan features a scoop neck and set-in sleeves. Textured bands in a contrasting color adorn the waist and cuffs. All hems are turned for a professional finished look.
All pieces are worked flat from the bottom up and then seamed. The turned hems are tacked in place, and then the collar and button bands are picked up and knit. Special instructions are given for the curve of the neckband to prevent flaring.
