The current heat wave notwithstanding, I am someone who likes to keep a cardigan nearby. Whether in the office or at home with my husband overseeing the thermostat, I often need an extra layer. Over the years, I have found lace cardigans the best way to keep comfortable regardless of the season.

This pattern shows off a lace pattern that looks complicated, but is easy as far as lace goes. It starts with a saddle shoulder, then is worked down to the armholes in separate pieces before being joined at the underarm. From there, the body is worked in one piece to the hem. The sleeves are picked up from the drop shoulder and worked down to the wrist.
