The Georgina Cardigan is sweetly feminine with a soft vintage feel. Captivating details like the cabled eyelet edging and off-set shoulder construction make this pattern a timeless treasure. The 3/4 length sleeves are easily modified to full length and feature a delicate chevron lace panel. The Georgina Cardigan will dress up any outfit and looks equally beautiful worn open or closed.
This pattern will keep your interest with easy to memorize simple lace panels in small sections, all knitted from charts. The cabled eyelet edging around the lower edge is surprisingly simple and doubles as a button-hole role.

Q: What is the length of this cardigan from the shoulder?
A: The length from the shoulder to the bottom edge is approximately 17 (18, 20)” long. It’s easy to add a little length by adding extra rows onto the edging section, but this will also affect the size of the collar. If you really want to get fancy, you could work a few short rows in the edging around the back section.
