No matter the circumstances, my girls like to be fancy. Whether they are fighting monsters or twirling in their best dresses, they always want to feel fancy. The Daily Fancy cardigan is the perfect sweater for dressing up your wardrobe. Knit seamlessly from the top down, this cardigan is light and airy, but still provides some extra warmth on brisk days. The delicate lace motif on the back of this sweater is dramatic but easy to knit. This pattern includes instructions for a cropped cardigan with short sleeves or a full cardigan with 3/4 sleeves. Whether your girl is rocking jeans, dress, or kung fu pants, this sweater makes every day a fancy day.
