This is a sweater born out of my love for the yarn in an unflattering knee length too-big sweater coat that was a gift from my dear friend.  I unwound the whole thing and paired it with some wool-ease I had and months later...viola!  



The neck can be worn numerous ways for warmth and to add a bit of funkiness. I put the seam on the side so thew neck was more versatile.  It is quite fluffy and warm.  It is thick, too,  and there is an i-cord edge all around that makes it almost jacket-like as opposed to a sweater.  More info, specs, close ups of lace pattern, etc. on le blog.  

***Thanks for all of the nice comments thus far!  I just wrote up a preliminary pattern (chemistry exam? what chemistry exam?) and put it on my blog (in the right hand margins: "Fern Diamonds Cardigan").  please let me know if more info is needed in places.  i hope some of you knit it up! I would love to see some incarnations!***

I love this cardigan/jacket!  Any chance of pattern/notes?

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

wow...i posted this minutes ago, i am glad to see the quick response!  (yay!) this is definately the best sweater all-around (fit, look, etc) i have made yet (and kitschy kitchen, you totally will make a great one -- your sweaters are part of the reason why i DO top down raglans!)  I am going away for the weekend (to Taos sheep and wool!) and if I can wing it I will try to write up the pattern on the plane.  I'll post it here when I do.

I love it! It's awesome. I'd been wanting to make a raglan that had some fancy stitching in it, like lace or cables, but I was afraid of the increasing (math is my enemy). Did you just knit plain at the top and then add your fancy stitches when it started to even out?
It looks fab, however you did it.
