Hopefully, the warmer days are coming soon. I’ve been a bit skeptical about that lately. Lime Gelato is the perfect pattern for it. It makes a great layered piece, cutting the chill of the early morning or too much AC. It has lots of little details to keep you interested: textured yoke, lace panel down the back, and a collar that is picked up and knit in garter.
This cardigan is meant to be worn open. The difference between the finished measurement and the size takes into account the open space at the center front. The collar does fill in some of that space, but it is meant to hang open as pictured.
