Moonshine from BabyCocktails is a versatile, feminine cardigan featuring a simple lace repeat which appears fluid when worked in a large panel. These waves of lace are subtly echoed in a slip stitch border along the front edges (which might be my favorite detail of the whole design). Worked in Tracie Too, a delicate sport weight wool from Imperial Stock Ranch, this cardigan is perfect for layering in cool or warm weather. Top down construction makes for a stress-free knit, and the lace repeat is easy to memorize. Instructions are included in the pattern for altering either width or length to make this flattering for your shape.
