Aneeta is an all-seasons wrap cardigan in a classic lace rib pattern. You can wear it as a summer cardigan by using cotton or cotton blend yarns. On the other hand, knit it in wool yarn for a stylish winter cover-up. You’ll also find the 2-row lace repeat easy to memorise!
You will achieve a good fit thanks to the optional waist darts and bust shaping increases. This also means there will be NO gaping at the bust! I have modelled the Aneeta cardigan with an inch or two of positive ease, but you can change the fit depending on your style preferences.
The straight sleeve and loose-fitting cuff make Aneeta an easy layering piece. Sleeved and sleeveless garments are comfortable to wear with this lace knitted cardigan. Long sleeves won’t crumple in winter, and your arms will enjoy ventilation in summer.
Variation 1 features mitred shaping worked through the ribbing, which will create or emphasise waist definition.
Variation 2 omits this waist shaping; consequently, the ribbing is worked straight for a streamlined shape.
Bust shaping increases are possible with both variations.
Please see the schematic and measurements chart for further details on sizing.
Special techniques include:
- lace increases and decreases (yo, ssk, k2tog, sk2po), central double decrease (CDD)
- ‘make 1’ style increases
- German short rows
