Dramatic over-sized lace creates a fast to knit, airy cardigan perfect for spring and summer. The garter stitch edging anchors the cardigan together for a light, comfortable fit.
Knit flat from the bottom up in one piece, German short rows shape the garter stitch shoulder slopes. Sleeves are worked in the round from the top down once the body is complete.
