This top-down, draped-front lace cardigan promises to be one of your most versatile pieces. The front sections are knit in a lovely wavy lace design that echoes the fall of the fabric when left open. OR, with the use of a shawl pin closure, wear the front to suit your mood and the temperature.
Lots of feminine details, a lovely cream-colored alpaca/silk blend yarn, and amazing lace stitch patterns add up to this beautiful, stunning cardigan. The blousy shape and fluttery short sleeves create a pretty and flattering effect. The moss stitch waist band softly gathers in the fullness to define a nice waist and finish off the cropped shape.
Here’s a sweet vest to top off an outfit. It’s knit in a worsted weight yarn (feel free to substitute a great worsted weight cotton or other blend!) from the bottom up in one piece (just like the super popular Talia vest that I first published through Knitty.com.). That means the only seaming is at the shoulders.
