The remarkable thing about this summer cardigan is the mesh pattern that I chose. It resembles filet crochet, even though it is knitted, and it’s very easy to work. However, the special thing about it is that it’s actually two-color. The second color is mostly covered by the first color, so you get only glimpses of it as you move around. This is why I called it the “subtle mesh”. For this cardigan I used contrasting colors. You can also use similar colors, for a slightly different effect.

The cardigan is worked sideways, cuff-to-cuff, and features side seams. The neckline and front opening, hem, including side slits, and sleeves are finished with applied I-cord.
