Sierra Currant is a sport weight cardigan worked from the bottom up with a nearly floral yet angular lace pattern evocative of Ribes nevadense, or as its more commonly know, the Sierra Currant. An easy garter stitch body carries up the lacy cable details and is joined together with the sleeves with seamless raglan shoulders.
