Marian is a feminine open cardigan/shrug, and has a lace back panel. This will be just as cute with a pair of jeans, as it will over a fancy dress. You have the choice of either long, 3⁄4 length, or short sleeves, and this is knit top down. The lace is charted and written out.
The sample was knit in Dream in Color Classy. A substitute yarn is shown below. Other alternative yarns include Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Manos del Uruguay Clasica Wool Semi-Solid, Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted, Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage and Malabrigo Worsted.
