Flippant
A long-sleeved lacy cardigan with clean, geometric lines that falls at mid-hip. The body of the cardigan is worked in one piece up to the armholes at which point it is divided, and the fronts and back are worked separately. The sleeves are worked separately and set in.
Designed for layering, the sleeves have a relaxed fit and the body's waist shaping comes from the inherent elasticity in the lace pattern.
