Pattern Description:

Laelia is a beautiful subtropical orchid with petals that fan out into stars.

This cardigan showcases that same quality with lace that fans out into graceful petal shapes. Worked from the collar down with raglan seam shaping, the lace is worked simultaneously with the body so there is little finishing needed when completed. Both charts and written instructions are included for the lace sections.

Laelia can be worn open but it also looks great belted or closed with a pin. The cardigan(tm)s long body nicely complements your favorite pair of jeans or a fancy dress.
Take it out for a lovely stroll in the park.
