Feel like expressing yourself? 
Channel your inner romantic with the high-drama of this one-of-a-kind cardigan. The delicate lace inserts and creative construction of this sleeve first, top down cardigan will keep you smiling all the way as you knit the entire sweater in one piece. 
The slightly boxy shape is flattering to all sizes and will keep you feeling hopelessly romantic as its drape frolics around you all day. 
There is a huge opportunity for you to add your own flair by combining colors in a delicate or playful way. Choose your own path, make your own statement, live freely today.
