Harmony is very feminine and extremely comfortable. It looks great paired with jeans or a skirt; wear it for a day at the office or a weekend getaway. The back and sleeves of the cardigan are worked in simple double crochet, and the fronts are worked in a lovely variation of a traditional shell pattern.
