Arcady | The Knitting Vortex

Highly textured lace and seamless top down construction give Arcady simple and pretty appeal. A narrow applied I-cord edges the front and neckline and makes delicate button loops for small pearl buttons. The narrow ribbing flows smoothly from the lace, making refined sleeve and body hems with a tiny garter edge. Light and delicate, this cardigan adds whimsy to jeans or is a romantic finish over a dress.
