20 sts and 28 rows = 4" in St st knit this cardigan in one piece, the front lace is
knit as you create the body, and the bottom
border is knit at a 90-degree angle to a live
stitch edge so there’s no sewing later. Your
leafy lace will really pop if it’s stitched in

block it! The result is a sweater that is
fun to knit, nifty to finish, and can be
worn with just about anything.
