8669 Cardigan (crochet)

The exquisite delicacy of this cardi is immediately apparent, but it also looks quick to work, since the lace is so airy and open. To our eyes it looks like Gothic arches and Alhambra geometrics together-- a pan-European homage to great architecture and design. It's worked in pieces, with fronts and back separate. No waist shaping is included, because when you're working a lightweight 4 ply, who needs it? Edgings are very simple, because you want to show off the body of the work. Flower instructions included; if you have leftover yarn, make lots of these lovelies to adorn everything you own.
