Silver Leaf Cardi from famed designer Hannah Fettig of Knitbot is a beautiful cardigan with a lacework collar and ribbed cuffs and hem. This beautiful pattern made its debut in Making No. 1 / Flora. Cardigan is knit from the bottom up in pieces, then seamed. Lace fronts are continued to make collar, joined using Kitchener stitch, then sewn to back neck.
