Rowan Classic Summer description of Cara: A pretty short sleeved lacy cardigan with a leafy border and scallop detail on the cuffs.

Cara is a cropped cardigan; the second photo shows the cardigan modified for length.

From back cover: If you are nostalgic for a more rural past or a holiday you remember from your childhood, you will love Classic Summer handknit and crochet collection of pretty tops in soft neat shapes with delicate edgings and features for women; cricket slipovers, vintage fairisles, and cables for men all with a 1950’s influence.

Also featured in Simply Knitting, issue 17, July 2006 as “Scent of Summer.”
