Where ever you go, there you are. The edge to edge decorative lace arrows of this cardigan remind you that you’re always at the center of the compass.

This cardigan is worked flat in one piece from the bottom up. Arrow lace panels run from hem to neck and side to side and intersect at the center back. Stitches are picked up at the armholes for sleeves.
