Dream In Color Cardigan
A wonderful lace-stitch cardigan that is comfortable to wear and a bit different. Notice swing type shape, the V neck, the bell sleeves, the variety of colors we had fun using, and the contrasting picot crochet trim. Have fun using your own color selection and enjoy the complements when you wear this.
