Find Leatherleaf at Harrisville Designs.
This flirty summer cardigan features a simple but eye-catching Trellis lace pattern and a wide, round neckline. Three buttons close the top of the sweater over the bust, if desired. It is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed. Harrisville Designs’ Silk & Wool yarn is a fantastic 50-50 blend of silk and wool. It’s got a great texture and visual appeal, and is light and airy. It makes a perfect warmer-weather yarn and I highly recommend it.
