Laurel is a feminine, light and lacy cardigan with three-quarter sleeves to wear as a warm weather cover up or an elegant top for dressier occasions. The 7-stitch, 4-row lace pattern is very easy and quick to knit. It is knit flat in one piece on circular needles from hem to armholes. All shaping is worked on right side stockinette rows. Finishing is simplified with your choice of a minimal 3-row knitted edging or one row of single crochet. A single focal point button provides the finishing touch. Laurel won a ribbon for lace garment at the 2012 New Mexico State Fair.
