Mirasol is a cute, little summer cardigan with a doubled collar, three quarter sleeves and small cable details at the fronts, the raglan shaping and the sides. (Body and sleeves can easily be lengthened tho)

It is worked top down starting with the doubled collar. It is completely seamless.

It can be made in only one color (it will look just as cute) or if you have some lonely matching skeins, like I had, you can make gradients (fades) as in the sample. The easiest way to do so is changing colors every two rows. But the gradient is much smoother if you alternate colors in every row as the sample. Instructions to do so are provided on page 2.
