|Even though the lace pattern is called Daisy Lace, the colour of the wool is much more Primrose than Daisy|
The stitch pattern is called Daisy Lace from the Knitter's Stitch collection book by Lesley Stanfield and Melody Griffiths and I decided to do the pattern across the back as well as on the front. I don't usually block fitted knitwear other than by wearing it, but this one I did press on the wrong side with a hot iron and wet tea towel, to open up the lace and save it from looking like a bowl of spaghetti. It's also slightly longer than I usually knit, simply because I had enough wool.
The wool I used was Patons Fairytale Dreamtime 4-ply, which was very nice to knit with. Body is in one piece up to the armholes, sleeves are top down, button band is knitted on and the neckline is an i-cord cast off. Buttons from Hammersmith Vintage Fair. There were enough on the card for another cardigan, which is good.
I think this looks a bit like Maria Olson's Miss Lemon pattern, although the lace pattern is different, it's shorter, not fitted and there's no waist shaping, so maybe it's just the colour!
