Shawl collared lacy cardigan

Hi everyone

I’m a new poster to your forum, but have been looking through quite a bit. I love this site, and you all seem like such a helpful bunch.

Here’s my dilemma. I’ve been looking and looking for a cardigan pattern (prefer a free one, but am getting desperate) that has a lacy/eyelet pattern (either a v shaped or zigzag eyelet) and a shawl-like collar. I have never made a sweater before, and the most challenging things I have done are mittens on dpn’s and i’m making my first pair of socks on size 2 dpn’s.

Am i reaching for the impossible? If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful. :muah:

Thanks a bunch!
