It is almost cardigan season again and our Bean, Alex, is ahead of the game! This gorgeous lace cardigan is perfect for layering and with balloon sleeves and deep cuffs, it adds a little drama to your wardrobe! Designed by Ambah O'Brien, this cardi was inspired by a small flowering shrub native to Australia. Alex thought it would be fitting to use a yarn native to Nevada, so she decided to knit this project with Reno Rafter 7 in the stunning Liquid Gold colorway!

A knitting needle and tape measure in one?! Dang! That's Smart!

Heck, you can even measure your gauge and do wraps per inch if you want! 32 inches in total, the green cord is 22 inches long, and the green/silver needles are each 5 inches long.
