Pattern Details

This transitional cardigan offers the perfect blend of elements for a multi-season wardrobe staple, all while being easy to modify and fun to knit. The lace pattern and 3/4-length sleeves keep things from getting too toasty, while the stockinette back and sleeves give you enough warmth to combat breezy days and nights. The unusual front closures are an interesting, tailored touch, and the fairly flat neckline shaping ensures the plackets may be worn closed or (if you prefer) encouraged to fall open into a wider V. The Plucky Knitter's Plucky Sweater is a wonderful everyday sweater yarn, with Sarah's incomparable eye for color. It is the perfect foil to these simple stitch patterns. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Should you desire to substitute yarn, please choose something without excessive drape (lest the collar get too droopy) that shows the stitch pattern well. Aislinn is constructed in pieces and then seamed, with waist ties picked up and knit after finishing. A well-placed snap is sewn to the inside of the cardigan plackets to keep things neat. Should you prefer, the cardigan could be made with button bands instead. Vertical darts enable easy customization to fit your needs. Should you desire less waist shaping than specified, either omit the shaping rows entirely, or omit/reduce only the shaping on the front of the sweater. Bustier women can work more increases on the front of the sweater, and not in the back. Extra stitches should be decreased into the neckline. As with all patterns, compare the schematic against your own measurements and make alterations as necessary.
