FO: "Ariosa" cardigan

This pattern is found in the Classic Elite #9105 (soft cover) book, titled “Saturday Afternoon”.
I really like the Classic Elite soft cover knitting booklets.

Anyway, the Ariosa is a very plain little cardigan, but the beauty and interest is on the back of it.
A centered lace panel. Very unusual.

I modified the sizing. Cast on for a larger size, and decreased down to a smaller size by armhole bind offs. That’s what gives it the slight A shape. Here’s what the model sweater looks like.

Here is my Rav notebook for the Ariosa.

If you heard a loud thump, that was just me passing out in Michigan! :wink: I really think you must have found a way to clone yourself!! Beautiful cardigan, what a beautiful back panel. Love the colour too.

OMG! I can’t believe how beautiful this is! Everything about it from the lace in the back to the unusual buttons.


Hurrah, it is another winner! I love the front being plain then that beautiful back. Lovely color too.

Beautiful sweater with a fascinating lace panel. It’s perfect all around including color and buttons. Enjoy every minute of wearing that one!

That’s so pretty!!

That turned out gorgeous! I like your A-line better than the original, and the “party in back” (lace) is divine!

That’s amazing. I love the pattern on the back. You knit so fast. So many FOs.

:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: it!

I love it, and I don’t think it’s ‘plain’ at all!
