This design is a cache-coeur and I’ve played with the idea of “coeur” by including a lace heart on the back, and even with the details of heart buttons. It is a heart warmer, or heart holder, kind of a cross between a cardigan and a shawl.

The pdf here varies slightly from the pattern in the book, as I decided I wanted to use different increase in the lace pattern. The pattern is both written and graphed.
