The Lakeside Mist cardigan is one of the 20 size-inclusive sweater patterns from my book, Modern Crochet Sweaters, available at all major retailers or at this link here.
The perfect everyday cardigan is as integral to your wardrobe as a classic white tee or a well-fitting pair of jeans. This charming, flowy cardigan is possibly the most versatile design in the entire book, an everyday-essential that you’ll be reaching for time and time again. The slim-fit sleeves perfectly balance this relaxed cardigan, while the eye is drawn to the statement collar, a finishing detail that really brings this design to life. Slip it on for a comfortable yet polished look for a casual night out or a cozy weekend outfit. One thing’s for sure: You’re going to need one in every color.
