Amanda Hester Smith's East Indie breed of ducks inspired this, their namesake cardigan. She dyed yarn to match the color of their feathers and incorporated their favorite treat – clovers – into the lace panels. This sweet summer weight cardigan knits up quickly, using under 1,000 yards of fingering weight yarn. The pattern is worked bottom hem up, with an easily memorized lace repeat and construction techniques suitable for an adventurous beginner. This romantic piece will provide just enough warmth for cooler summer days or the air conditioned spaces. Visit the Ravelry pattern page for more photos and details.
