A lightweight cardigan for cool summer evenings.
It is worked with a larger needlesize than recommended to obtain an airy, stretchy light weight garment. I think it would work also nicely with linen or silk blends.

Fleur is worked top-down with raglan sleeves. The lacey flowers are worked seperately in the round and sewn in afterwards. The flowers are charted with fully written instructions.
Instructions in the pattern for long, ¾ or short sleeves and for a short cardi or a longer version.
The cardigan is finished with an applied I-cord and I-cord buttonholes. All techniques used (short rows, provisional cast on, I-cord bind off, I-cord buttonholes, m1L and m1R) are explained in the pattern including diagrams and illustrations
