Grannie Smith

A vintage inspired cardigan knit in light as a feather mohair.  The lacy body is trimmed with an easy to work picot edge.  Just add your most precious buttons from your Grandma’s stash to make it your own!

Also try knitting this sweater up in a fingering weight yarn for a less sheer option.
