Santa Rosa Plum

Knit from the top down, this delicate lace cardigan has wide lace panels that travel from the neck down the length of the cardigan. The yarn color moves from a delicate rose to a deep plum as you work, creating a lovely ombre.

Raglan shoulder shaping and gentle waist shaping make this a cardigan to flatter most body shapes.
