Bristol Lace Cardigan
A shell-stitch border frames the delightfully feminine lacy body of this short-sleeve tee-style cardigan. This lightweight cardigan was inspired by that first breath of spring when you want to run for your summer clothes but admit that you need a sweater, too. Try working in a tonal or solid, rather than variegated yarn, for a look that is both tailored and feminine. Create your own silhouette by closing with a shawl pin at either neck or waist.
