Breeze is a light cardigan with a simple construction and interesting detail. It is casual and comfortable and, at the same time, feminine and flattering on ladies of all sizes.
I used my favorite cardigan construction with a shawl collar and open, flowing fronts that are perfect to show the lace pattern against a plain stockinette stitch background. The cardigan is seamless, worked from the top down.
