Penelope is a quick to knit cardigan that uses simple styling and clever techniques to create a sweet raglan cardigan with a vintage flavour. Penelope is knit seamlessly from the top down and is adorned with a shaped crew neck and a lace hemline. The pattern features two body lengths; a traditional cardie length and a cropped length that will please even the fussiest tween or teen.

Construction: 
Penelope is constructed seamlessly from the top down using a raglan yoke construction. The crew neckline is shaped with short rows to create a more rounded appearance. After knitting the yoke, the garment is divided to knit the sleeves and body. The body is finished with a lace hemline.
