“This relaxed, easy cardigan is cozy enough for chilly spring days and light enough for sunnier times. Its worn-open style looks smashing over dresses or jeans, and the waist shaping (located on the back of the piece only) provides elegant, gentle curves. Asilomar is constructed in pieces from the bottom up, with set-in sleeves. The lace trim is worked in line with the cardigan fronts to the shoulders, then continued to form the back neck. The neckline’s garter trim is picked up and worked once the sweater is seamed.” − Amy Herzog
