This video is the middle of three videos to make this lovely cardigan. All instructions are included--with amazing detail. A very good teacher--and everything you need is in the video!!!

The cardigan has a lovely lace pattern down the front and a lacy detail at the raglan sleeve.

I just watched these videos through to the end and I have to say that I don't agree that it's okay to iron a knit sweater. "J" irons her sweater through two layers of a pillowcase. I would never do that. Holding the steam iron above the knitting (like she shows for the lace part) is the best way for the whole garment. I'm sure!!!

Thanks for sharing. I'll try to watch the videos later. I expect her approach is different from mine. I've been knitting top down cardigans and pullovers without patterns for years. For a raglan all I need to cast on and get started is to figure out how many back neck stitches will be needed. For a sweater with set in sleeves I need the number of stitches for the shoulder seam also. Currently I've got a raglan cardigan otn and have reached the point where I knit the pockets, which are seamless.
