Margarita is an easy, toss-on cardigan for summer. Bold lace on back is echoed in the lace detail that finishes the ribbed collar, and a casual length and short sleeves make this perfect over a sundress or shorts. The fit is open, with narrow front panels meant to showcase what’s underneath, but directions are included to make the fit more traditional if you prefer a more closed silhouette.

The yarn is a lovely wool and cotton mix from O-Wool. It adds the perfect casual, but distinct vibe to the lace, and hits that delicate balance of light, soft, warm and just a touch rustic on the head, making Margarita feminine, but not too girly.
