Flora Cardigan

This slim-fitting lace and texture cardigan features delicate ruffles at the lower edges and a pretty floral lacy border. A simple series of eyelets creates the illusion of soft ribbing, adding a gentle texture to the garment. The waist shaping is worked with a smaller needle size rather than decreases. It can be omitted if desired.

Fiddlesticks Knitting Rippling Waters Scarf Knitting Pattern


A most exquiite and unique shawl. The word “arabesque” is a musical term which means “decorative musical material or composition based on florid embellishment.” We think this lacy stole exemplifies the word in knitterly terms, being decoratively embellished with lovely lace throughout! Advanced intermediate knitters, but don't be shy - go ahead and try.
