A lightweight cardigan is so convenient for the summer. I wanted something that combined delicate lace mesh hems and cuffs with the sleek look of stockinette. This cardigan uses two techniques for shaping around the hips and waist: decreases and increases, plus a change in stitch pattern. Elegant ribbing draws in the waistline for a flattering fit and creates a slight flare on the sleeves. A-line shaping provides ease around the hips, with side slits at the hem for more movement.
