Pineapple Ice Cardigan
Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “This timeless cardigan is crocheted in one piece, leaving minimal seams to sew. An easy pattern stitch is framed by an exquisite pineapple lace edging. Folded back as a lapel, the edging softens the neckline and waist, and the two fronts overlap as a wrap. Wear the cardigan with your choice of a tie, button, or pin closure.”
