I made this sweater according to the lace cardigan pattern in The Traditional Sweater Book by Madeline Weston. I think my only modification was to not include the pockets. I don't see the point of transparent pockets. The book is old but you might be able to find a secondhand copy here:

I used Debbie Bliss Angel yarn, which is a laceweight blend of kid silk and mohair. I originally bought this yarn for a tam and scarf for me, but then I was visited by a vision of it as used for this sweater, which I had long wanted to make. I dont quite know what Im going to wear it with. I think I'm going to buy or make a little ivory lace camisole to wear underneath it, and wear it alternately with my several dark brown skirts, trousers, and leggings. I also have a cream wool crepe skirt that might look good with it. This wasnt one of my more practical inspirations. It is pretty though, so delicate and soft, like a pale green cloud.

It is SO nice to have this project done. It took me a year, which is atypical for me, as knitting projects don't normally take me longer than a few months at the most. It was very slow going and I kept putting it aside in favour of anything else.

What a beautiful cardigan.  I bet it is so warm.  I love the lacy look and the colour.

Beautiful!  Lovely haze on the yarn.  Good choice to leave off the pockets.  I love the color!
