This casual but feminine lace cardigan is the perfect little extra layer over a T-shirt or a sundress for late summer evenings or in overly chilly AC. The undulating lace pattern creates just a hint of an A-line shape, while the raglan shaping of the stockinette bodice creates a nice, simply tailored fit. This cardigan can be knit in any light fingering-weight yarn, but choose one that will drape nicely; a silk or bamboo or tencel blended with merino would be perfect.
