Evoking the romance of times gone by, Fair Lady harkens to an age when garments were adorned with lavish lace ruffled collars and cuffs.
Back and fronts are knit separately. For sleeves, lace cuffs are knit sideways, then stitches are picked up and sleeves are worked flat. After sewing seams, stitches are picked up all around the garment, lace edging is knit sideways and joined to the picked up stitches as it is knitted. Our sample was knit in Size 1. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Advanced Intermediate knitters.
