This cap-sleeved cardigan is the perfect transition piece! It has a gorgeous layered lace pattern with lots of texture. The overlapping stitches manage to make it both lacy and squishy, so it’s really cozy! The Wellspring Cardigan is perfect for layering over a dress, but also looks great with jeans/jean shorts or leggings. Dress it up or down!

The sweater is worked in one piece and seamed only at the shoulders. The edging and cap sleeves are worked directly onto the piece.

This sweater contains instructions for women’s sizes XS-3XL, with tips for making larger or smaller sizes, in-between sizes, and cropped or hip-length cardigans. Once you get the lace pattern down, it’s easy to customize!
