Worked top-down and completely seamless, this cropped cardigan in lace weight avers to be a quick, easy knit with some very exciting elements like 'dropping stitches'(we like to live dangerously. The dropped stitches accentuate and flatter the waist and the easy lace edgings are finished by some dewdrop shaped beads (optional).
