Danseuse Cardigan was designed as a companion to the Danseuse Top. It is a top-down, raglan sleeve cardigan with an easily memorized, one-row lace and a touch of seed stitch. The only finishing is just weaving in ends. It’s easily customized to exactly your size – just try it on as you go, and stop increasing when it fits!
