Pattern Description:

Cecilia cardigan has a delicate and feminine lacy collar. The fit dances between a vintage look and a bomber jacket shape, with a comfortable bust area, slightly shaped at the waist and ending with a ribbing band.
The sleeve's cuffs have the same lacy motif as the collar and they go a little over the top of the hands.
When buttoned for a preppy look, an elegant band covers the buttons. Cecilia also looks fun when dressed opened and with your favorite t-shirt and jeans.
