Be Mine by designer Matilda Kruse is a generously cut cardigan with raglan shaping and a beautiful lace pattern on the back. The lace is truly joyful to knit - just-one-more-row-guaranteed. When finished, this is the kind of garment you will want to wear all day every day. And it has pockets! Be Mine wants to be yours. Our supersoft Cheeky Merino Joy in colour Ruby creates even more cosiness and adds an especially neat look to the stitch pattern.

The cardigan is knitted top-down and seamless. It has large parts in stockinette stitch for relaxation while the lace pattern makes it fun to knit. The lace is described in both a chart and a text version. The length of the design can be easily adapted, and the pattern explains how to add buttons if you prefer this option.
