Sprigs of flowers with lacy stems give a nostalgic, Victorian feel to this little cardigan by Martin Storey. The Rowan Panama yarn, a cool and drapey blend of cotton, rayon, and linen, is perfect for summer garments, while the slubs of shimmery viscose in the yarn add extra interest. Layer this over a light blouse or dress for warmth without bulk.
