Knit from the top down, this delicate lace cardigan has wide lace panels that travel from the neck down the length of the cardigan. There are 2 yarn options given; either a gradient version where the yarn color moves from light to dark, creating a lovely ombre or a single colour version in Nua.

Raglan shoulder shaping and gentle waist shaping make this a cardigan to flatter most body shapes.
