Midsummer Kimono

Worked in one seamless piece, this cardigan evokes images of summer music festivals, faeries, and a certain famous séance guide at The Haunted Mansion. The lace edging is picked up along the bottom edge after the piece is seamed, and tasseled fringe adds just a bit of extra flair. Add some length, and you’ve got a lovely duster! Opt for a belt in lieu of the fringe, and you have an instant classic.
