This cardigan is very decorative with its intricate lace knitting and mandarin collar. The sleeves and neckline have a bobble trimming. The buttons are crocheted using bulkier yarn and the edge for the buttons and buttonholes are crocheted. The lace knitting stitches are from the book Knitting Patterns Book 250 by Hitomi Shida but other than that the design is by Veronika Lindberg.

The pattern is only for a size S but you could easily make a larger size by simply adding stitches to the stockinette stitch parts of the cardigan. The pattern suggests casting on 176 stitches for the body but for larger size you could begin with 200 stitches. Then you would have 18, 20, 20 and 18 stitches for the stockinette stitch parts instead of 12, 14, 14 and 12 sts. For sleeves you could start with 46 sts instead of 40. All of the lace stitch parts of the pattern would stay the same.
