Violet Knit Duster:
Knit all in one piece, this stunning duster is worked from the bottom up in a charming lace pattern. The clever design naturally drapes into an elegant and flattering waterfall collar. Ideal for work or play, this duster is a must-have in your summer wardrobe.
Violet Knit Duster Materials:
- Bijou Basin Ranch “Lhasa Wilderness”, 75% yak/ 25% bamboo; 180 yards [165m]; 2oz (56 grams)] CYCA size 2 sport 12-ply): Royal, 6 (7, 8) hanks
- Size US 6 (4 mm) circular needles, 32”; or size to obtain correct gauge
- Size G-6 (4mm) crochet hook
- Stitch holders
- tapestry needle
- stitch holder or spare circular needles
GAUGE IS IMPORTANT:
As in all of the other garments that I make, I highly suggest making a hanging gauge swatch before you get started. This is important to see how gravity will alter the size of your cardigan after wearing it. Starting with a swatch will also save you the headache of making the wrong size before you even start. To make a hanging gauge swatch I start by making a swatch of the stitch pattern that is at least 6 inches square. Then I hang the swatch to a hanger or cloths line and add additional cloths pins to the bottom to simulate gravity. Take a before and after measurement of your swatch to see what happens to it.
Be sure to add this pattern to your Ravelry Favorites and show me your version of the Violet Knit Duster as you finish.
