Floaty and soft, this open cardigan is knitted in
a laceweight mohair-silk.

Working Rowan’s Kidsilk Haze laceweight yarn on larger needles gives a beautifully airy fabric, as demonstrated here.
The design has square front panels which softly hang open, and are decorated with a lace stitch. The back of the cardigan has a full-length panel of lace too. The rest of the body and the sleeves are in stocking stitch.
