Dandelion Honey

Description

This breezy cardigan in 10 sizes (XS to L and 1X to 6X) is a workhorse in disguise—in heavy lace yarn, it’s a pretty little nothing; fingering weight adds an organic coziness to span the seasons. Every part of this design has options—mix and match sleeve and body lengths, then choose your favorite neck style to customize. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, or yardage requirement.

Shown here in size S crewneck crop, knit in Kent Lace color Wet Sand and a size M crewneck crop in White Sand. The dark sample is a size M v-neck crop, knit in Stone Soup Fingering, color Slate.

Buttons shown on the samples are the Alina and Mabel.
