You’ve been looking for that light, easy and delicate cardigan to spice up your summer wardrobe? For all those days when it’s just a bit too chilly to only wear that dress or beautiful top that you can’t stay away from - Fjäril is for you! Fjäril (Swedish for “Butterfly”) is a simple yet interesting design, worked top down in stockinette with lace panels in the shape of butterflies. This only calls for 1-2 skeins of fingering weight yarn - perhaps that lovely skein of sock yarn that you’ve been saving?
