~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Spring Leaf is a lacy, open-front cardigan with slight A-line shaping. A lower back point, 3/4 sleeves, English tailoring, and raw unfinished edges in a linen blend, make the cardi casual and polished, without being fussy. The cardigan is knit in pieces (front, back, and sleeves) and seamed.

The lace patterns are both written and charted.
