Tommelise is my version of a cardigan perfect for the heroine from the H.C. Andersen’s fairytale. It’s petite, sweet and romantic. This garment is knitted seamlessly and top-down. It has intricate lace which looks just like a flowers. You can easily adjust it and give it a special character - just knit it short/long sleeves or use some gradient yarns.
