Ecuador KAL

JOJI's light and flowing cardigan Ecuador cardigan is the perfect transitional garment to take you through the rest of the Summer in style and usher you into Fall with a certain flair! And now designer Joji is hosting a KAL for Ecuador in my Ravelry group,

Worked with Malabrigo's fingering weight yarn Sock in a fairly loose gauge it features an A-line shape, with draped fronts and a very simple lace pattern in the body. This pattern is absolutely seamless and it includes directions for a short-sleeved and a long-sleeved version.

It is based on another pattern of JOJI's Pole, if you are familiar with that pattern, you will find the instructions very similar to it.
But changes include:Link
  • Different gauge
  • Different collar
  • Lace pattern in the body
  • Set-in sleeves with short row shaping

Sizes To fit chest: 30/32 (34/36, 38/40, 42/44, 46/48, 50/52, 54/56, 58/60)" and 75/80 (85/90, 95/100, 105/110, 115/120, 125/130, 135/140, 145/150) cm.
