Looks nice. I can't imagine it would be very warm, though. Not something I'd wear outside, since I'd wear a cardi for extra warmth, and the holes in lace would just let the wind right through.

But still, it looks good. Definitely something I'd like to make, and perhaps give away as a gift.

Honestly, I've been drooling over this cardi for about a month. I even love it in this color. I'm waiting until I get a bit better at lace knitting though. Also waiting until hubby forgets the last batch of yarn I bought so I can feasibly go buy more without him getting cranky.  Grin

Chuck Norris does not knit. He bangs the table, and the shockwaves force the yarn to create clothing.

I bought the yarn for this and have started it, but I've had to frog it a lot.  It's a very tricky pattern, and over at knittersreview, we have been helping each other out a lot.  I have to quit working on it when i'm tired and i zone out, and then I screw up.  I can only work on it at night though, with 3 kids running around, it's impossible to concentrate on a tricky pattern during the day. 
I think it will be warm enough since the yarn recommended is wool.  I have a very lacy wool wraparound sweater, and I wear it with a tank top underneath, and my arms are very warm. 

If you want a challenge, try this one out.

it is perfect for me because I have been looking for something:

lacy
topdown raglan
more challenging
and unusual...

"Challenge" might be an understatement. But, with the help of the knittersreview comments, I've finally gotten past the third row. No more tears of frustration! I'm even starting to enjoy it, kind of.

Anyone else trying it out with a different yarn? I figure with the lace and the pattern adjustments built in, you could try just about any yarn.

actually, depending on what fiber you use, lace is surprisingly warm.  wool lace shawls can be light as a feather and holey as a priest, but they will still provide a good amount of warmth.

i've been lusting after this particular cardi for a while...just have to get a bit farther ahead on the old school work and pick out some yarn!
