Olive is an easy lace cardigan that is approx waist length and sits close to the body.
Short sleeves with a lace border add a dainty look and allow you to use it for most seasons. This would be a great cardigan in warmer areas as well.
Olive uses only basic knitting stitches plus the following - p2tog, k2tog, and yarn over.
If you can knit those stitches you can complete Olive.
