This is a light cardigan with a decorative lace panel on the back. I originally made a pullover version and I was asked to make a cardigan version, too. The cardigan is worked from top down with contiguous (developed by SusieM on Ravelry) sleeve shaping. Everything is worked seamlessly, you only have to pick a few stitches from the underarm. There is no shaping on the body, however shaping can be easily modified if preferred.
