Elena Nodel designed Touch the Sky as a delightful, light weight, lacy, open, and very feminine cardigan. This cardigan is worked as a top down raglan and is completely seamless. The design features V-lace lace that radiates across the back and fronts; the lace rays it creates is very reminiscent of the bird’s feathers during the flight, thus the name. Let this cardigan enchant you with its simple lace and flowing lines. Let your imagination fly as you see the design unfold. Available in 11 pattern sizes, in short sleeves or 3/4 length sleeves.
