Margarita is an easy, toss-on cardigan for summer. Bold lace on the back is echoed in the lace detail that finishes the ribbed collar. A casual length and short sleeves make this perfect over a sundress or shorts. The fit is open, with narrow front panels meant to showcase what's underneath, but directions are included to make the fit more traditional if you prefer a more closed silhouette.
Choose the size that gives you about 2” of negative ease, based on bust size, for the fit shown. Sizing is given for actual finished garment measurements. Modified shaping options allow you to add 4, 4.5, or 6” to this measurement. Revise yarn quantities if you use modified shaping.
The yarn I used is a lovely wool and cotton mix from O-Wool in Peridot. It hits that delicate balance of light, soft, warm and just a touch rustic, making Margarita feminine, but not too girly. Alternatives yarns are suggested but always check your gauge.
