Holli Yeoh | Classic Lace Cardigan

Classic Lace Cardigan

The lovely shell lace Yeoh places on her three-quarter-sleeve cardi is especially gorgeous in aquamarine “Creamy Flamé” by Kolláge Yarns. The fronts of the shoulders wrap prettily to the back, creating smooth lines. At the lower edges, the shell lace pattern nests in a background of garter stitch.
