Dayflower by Kate See

A feminine cardigan in a scrumptuous merino, angora, silk blend.  The delicate bands of lace along the sides give just enough interest, and the sleeves and neck ribbing end with a small ruffle.

The round yoke creates a seamless design, and simple pearl buttons finish the look.

Pair the cardi with jeans and a t-shirt for a casual weekend, or top a girly dress for a more polished look.
