The Porcia cardigan is knit in one piece to the armholes with an allover Swiss dot–effect eyelet lace pattern. The sleeves are knit separately and joined to the body before working raglan-sleeve shaping in the yoke. This breezy summer cardigan would be great in any of the colors of Berroco Modern Cotton DK!
