I was inspired to design this cardigan many, many years ago when I was knitting another lace cardigan. When the body was finished, before sewing in the sleeves I tried it on as a vest, and was wearing a striped shirt underneath. I loved the result! That sweater completed with its intended sleeves, but THIS sweater was on my mind ever since! I’m super excited to finally bring it into reality!
