Introducing a new pattern designed with indigodragonfly yarn!

Nilgiri is part of Laura Chau‘s  Afternoon Tea Collection, Volume Two.  Knit in MCN Worsted in Tiny Bloodsucking Dancer, this cardigan features a geometric lace pattern.  Laura always includes elegant details in her designs, and this one includes folded, knit in hems that give a tailored finish.

We think this would be equally lovely knit in MCS Worsted.


Pattern details:

NILGIRI is a pretty cardigan with a geometric lace pattern. The unique stitch pattern is easy and fast to work, and great for a beginner lace knitter. The relaxed shape of this cardigan is perfect dressed up or down. Neat hems and garter stitch bands offset the lacy pattern.

The body of Nilgiri is worked in one piece from the bottom up, beginning with a provisional cast on and knit-in hem. Sleeves are worked flat from the bottom to the underarm, then joined together with the body to work the seamless raglan yoke.


Finished Sizes: 29.75 (33.75, 37.75, 41.75, 45.75, 49.75, 53.75, 57.75) inches


Yardage: 870 (990, 1050, 1280, 1400, 1525, 1645, 1770) yds or 5 (5, 6, 7, 7, 8, 9, 9) skeins of indigodragonfly MCN Worsted or MCS Worsted
