Light as a mist, charming as a bloom – this is what this cardigan is. Mist and Bloom is a truly everyday, comfy and cuddly sweater for every type of silhouette. The delicate, slightly blurred lace panels provide a romantic and gentle look. It will match perfectly to any piece of your garment!

Mist and Bloom is a casual cardigan with a slight ease to provide a comfort. It is made top-down and almost completely seamless. There is one exception – the armpit openings are closed using a seam to reach the best visual effect and stabilization. The plackets are made simultaneously with the rest of the sweater, and so are the buttonholes.
The main features of the design are delicate and slightly “blurred” lace panels on the bottom of the body and the sleeves. I wanted to avoid sharp edges of the stitch patterns, aiming for something more elusive, foggy, mysterious… Something associated with softness and tranquillity. Like a morning mist on a pond full of aquatic plants!
