Pattern Description:

For those girls, like me, who practically live in cardigans, this sweater is perfect for summer! The light, lacy details keep it weightless and dainty while also providing a bit of coverage if the breeze kicks up or the AC is on too high. the boatneck gives a bit more sophistication and attitude than other cardis and three-quarter sleeves solidify this top's place in your wardrobe during warmer seasons. A loose fit can be dressed up or down easily and the bold color makes a pleasant statement!

The sweater is knit top-down, so feel free to play with the length and adjust to your preferences. There are no seams to sew up, and just a few ends to weave in!
