Wild Almond is a vintage-inspired lace weight cardigan knit from the top down.  This design allows you to take a relatively small amount of precious yarn and turn it into an entire garment.  The silhouette evokes the sweaters of past eras with defined waist shaping, slightly blouson sleeves and dainty lace detailing.  A simpler, cropped version is also offered and the length of sleeves and body in either version can be adjusted to suit you.  This sweater is full of thoughtful details for a precision fit but all of the techniques involved are relatively easy to work  Enhanced decreases provide elegant detailing to the body shaping, a double-knit hem gives the garment a beautiful, stable edge and a slender line of I-cord edging is added to the neck at the very end so you have complete control over how much you draw in the neckline.  The final touch is a double-knit buttonband with integrated buttonholes that is added to the completed garment for a refined and structured finish.  Extensive source information is given for button-related notions including sewing needles, silk thread, backing buttons and more, all designed to add length of wear to your garment.

Each kit contains the yarn you will need to complete your project.
