Ohh Summer!


This design is so summer!

This cardigan is part of a summer knits collection, “La Isla Bonita”, and as other pieces in the collection, it is knit with fingering weight/4-ply yarn to a DK gauge and requires just 1-2 balls of yarn.

This lightweight cardigan is perfect for summer; wear it upon a favorite sundress in the cool summer evenings or on top of a bathing suit on a way to the beach.  The cardigan is worked as a top down raglan, features very simple lace that creates a very elegant look, and is completely seamless.
