What's this type of cardigan called?

Hi all.

I want to knit myself a cardigan and found some lovely wool today that would be perfect for the style I want. The problem is I can't find a pattern. I think it's because I'm using the wrong words when I'm searching for one. So can anyone help me with what the proper name is?

I want something like this:


Thanks in advance for any help.

    Thanks for the replies. I should have been clearer, it's more the loose/open style of the fabric that I'm looking for, to make it sort of see through and lacy. Or is that not down to the pattern but down to me to alter the guage?

    No wonder I can't find the right pattern! Maybe I should just stick to scarves.

    That's the looser knit, then. The waterfall is the cardie which has folds rather than a fastening at the front.

    You need to find out what size needles and what thickness wool you need- I'd think bigger needles than usual would give the see-through quality you're after.
