A light and feminine cardigan inspired from my grandmother’s childhood. The cardigan is worked back and forth, from the bottom up. The lace is described with a chart. The lace is made at both the body part and at the sleeves. The yoke is knitted with raglan decreases. The collar is knitted on the cardigan in the end. The collar is not removable. The cardigan is closed with buttons. You can possibly just make 1 or a few buttonholes in the top of the cardigan, if you don’t want buttons all the way.
