Concise Lace Cardigan

Concise Lace Cardigan



This cropped lace cardigan is the ideal layer to wear with summer dresses. It provides just enough coverage, while the openwork pattern keeps it from getting too warm—perfect for summer evenings. The truncated length and small shawl collar are reminiscent of ultra feminine 1950s style. Knit seamlessly from the hem up, this sweater is quick and fun to knit.
