Floral Mesh Cardigan

This beautiful lace cardigan is worked in one piece to the armholes, then the fronts and back are worked separately to the shoulders. The picot-style edging adds just the right finishing touch. Wear the cardigan with a pin at the neck or without any closure at all, or work the edging to accommodate small buttons (optional).

The lace pattern is presented in both written and charted formats.
