Dream was a challenge I gave myself when I purchased just one ball of Shadow Lace in this beautiful color Snorkel. I wondered if I could create a short, just above hip jacket with lacey sleeves and waist band.

Much to my delight I was able to create Dream. Dream is made from 100% Merino and I would highly suggest that if you use alternate yarn it is something similar to Merino so it will fluff properly and be light. This sweater can be closed in several ways because the lace in the edges allows you to slip a button anywhere. Here I overlapped the lapels to create a different closure.

This is a fairly snug cardigan/shrug and if you want a looser fit you may want to go up a size.

Stitches you need to know -
K—knit
P—purl
K2tog  knit 2 stitches together through front loops
Ssk—knit 2 stitches together through back loops
YO—yarn over needle to create new stitch
Daisy Stitch—k1, p1, k1 in next 3 stitches to create 3 again
P3tog—purl 3 stitches together
pattern available on knitchicgrace.etsy.com
