Amanda is a top-down, light-as-a-feather raglan sleeve cardigan with an easily memorized lace skirt. The only finishing is just weaving in ends. It’s my favorite for those days when you need a little something, but it’s too warm for anything much. It’s easily customized to exactly your size – just try it on as you go, and stop increasing when it fits!
