This read little cropped cardigan had to be made! It was my very last 5 balls of Air Lace in this gorgeous color not produced any more. But there are 15 more gorgeous colors to choose from and I will make another one for myself:-)

Any other slightly thicker lace will do as well. It weighs really only 125 gram - if you do not count the buttons:-). It is the perfect layering piece over blouses and dresses. And its even more elegant over a t-shirt and jeans or trousers. Many options to wear it and so light for travelling. The yarn makes it cozy and warming.

You can see the measurements in centimeters in one of the photos on the schematics.

Construction:
This is a straight little cropped cardigan with raglan shaped arms. It should have some ease (about 10 cm circumference) around your natural bust. The cardigan is knit bottom up immediately with the button bands and a small I-cord-edging for a neat side finish. The arms are introduced at the arm holes. We have knit them down from there to the cuffs, but we offer the second option that you start them at the cuffs and then introduce them to the body and go up all together. The button band is ribbed as well as the bottom and neck bands. It is a very simple cardigan to show off the beauty of this yarn and can be worn with dresses as well as blouses and shirts. A good layering cardigan. Our model is wearing size M with a natural bust of 100 cm circumference.
