New store sample: Liesl April 29, 2014 – Posted in: Project Ideas, Store Samples


From the designer – Ysolda Teague: “Liesl is a round yoked cardigan worked from the neck down in a simple allover feather and fan lace pattern. Different effects can be achieved by using a variety of yarns in worsted to chunky weights and lots of options are given so that you can make Liesl your own by varying the neckline depth, body and sleeve lengths and cast off method. Fasten your finished cardigan with any number of buttons, a ribbon bow or perhaps a special pin.”

Our sample above was knit using light and lofty Worsted Cotton from Blue Sky Alpacas – a perfect choice for summertime garments  We opted for the wide-necked version with 3/4 length sleeves (instead of cap-sleeves) for optimum layering opportunities from early spring onwards!
