If you can’t go to Paris, let Paris come to you with this elegant cardigan with lacy arches. The soft alpaca and Tencel yarn provides warmth for the evening out while giving the densely worked pattern fluidity. Simple shaping lets the lace shine. Ours is finished with a satin bow, but you could use a classic button.

Beware! Error in the sleeve Review by Anne

There's a serious and glaring error in this pattern, and it relates to the sizes 46 and 53. The pattern directs you to set up and work 9 or 10 shells for eight rows for the body of the sleeves. It then begins the decrease. The decrease will instruct you to decrease to 9 or 11 shells. That's either the same number as you started with (for the 46) or ONE MORE than you started with (for the 53).

The sweater itself is lovely, but I wouldn't purchase this without a clear indication that this problem has been addressed and corrected. The yarn is not especially cheap.
