Red Lace Cardigan - Shaker Wanna-be

Hey girls!

I have a project from last year to show at last. Remember the red lace cardigan? Well it is finished! 

Pattern is Shaker, by Kim Hargreaves.
Modifications - I shortened the sleeves and didn't add a button band, instead I did a single crochet edging. All because I was short on yarn. Good thing, I ended up with just a small nugget of yarn at the end.

I love the lace pattern, easy to memorize but interesting in construction. My first red garment, a step out of my usual wardrobe colours!
