This romantic summer cardigan is knit seamlessly from start to finish. Beginning at the back neck, the cardigan flows into the simple lace panels at the fronts. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked to the cuffs, before the edging bands are picked up to form the buttonhole and button bands.
Cable/lace pattern is charted.
