My goals when designing Laika were simple. So often in warmer weather I find myself reaching for the store bought cardigans in my wardrobe over the handknits because they're thin enough to stuff in my bag. Lace can be delicate and girly, but it can also be simple and geometric and I love knitting on simple lace patterns because they grow so fast and mould to the body so well. Laika is the perfect cardigan to carelessly throw in your bag as an extra layer with any outfit, pretty but casual, lightweight but not too delicate.
